“At 58 metres, Shine Falls is Hawke's Bay's most spectacular waterfall.”

Shine Falls is roughly a 1.5 hours drive away from Napier, and the last 12km is gravel road - but it's worth the trip!

The Shine Falls track is a 1.5 hour return walk, and leads to the base of the waterfall. The walk goes through the farmland and beneath towering sandstone bluffs. There are some uphill sections on the track as well as stream crossings, but they are all bridged and easy.

Getting there

From Napier, head north-east on SH2 and follow it for the next 43.5km until you see the 'Shine Falls' sign, where you need to turn left into Matahorua Rd. After 11km turn left into Heays Access Rd. Follow this road for 6.5 km until you reach a DOC car park, on your left, with a picnic table (no toilets).
