“A stunning 3-tiered waterfall in the heart of Tangoio Forest, just 20 minutes from Napier.”

Tangoio Falls is absolutely gorgeous, and is particularly spectacular after rain.

Starting from the swing bridge at the carpark, the falls is a 50 minute retuirn walk which follows the stream. Tangoio Falls and Te Ana Falls are both accessed from the same starting point. They share the first 10 minutes then head in different directions. From the tracks junction uphill walking leads you to the waterfall's viewing platform. The track can be muddy and slippery - so take care! The base of the waterfall is officially inaccessible.

Return via the same track. Don't forget to walk a side track to Te Ana Falls (definitely worth it!) - it will take just 5 minutes from the tracks junction to reach the falls.

Getting there

From Napier, travel north on the SH2 for 25 km. A large car park is on your right and well signposted. There are picnic tables available (no toilets).
