“A gentle 30 min walk through bush and over farmland to the beautiful Omaru Falls. On Omaru Road, clearly signposted from SH4.”

Cross the stile and walk across the farm track for a few hundred metres. There is another stile to cross before the walking track enters bush filled with ferns and young rimu.

The track follows a stream before crossing a swing bridge and back onto farmland. Follow the grassy track and orange markers.

There is an ideal picnic spot next to the river and a small terraced waterfall. Continue up the grassy track to the falls lookout. The falls drop about 45 m and are most impressive after times of heavy rain.

Getting there

12 km south of Te Kuiti, turn left at the Taumaranui/National Park turnoff on to SH 4.

Go down SH4 for 19 km then turn off at Omaru Road. The turnoff is located on the right hand side of the road and is clearly signposted. The Omaru Falls car park and track entrance is 500 m down Omaru Road.
