Helena Falls is the first of the major permanent waterfalls you'll see at the remote Doubtful Sound. It is said to have a 200m drop. This waterfall is visible in the distance from the Wilmot Pass Overlook.
Of all the waterfalls in Doubtful Sound, this one probably has the most satisfying flow and thus is probably the most beautiful.
