I belong to Madurai, Tamil Nadu, South India. We have two falls near to our place, One is Kutlaadampatti Falls within 20-30 km from my house and another one, Kumbakkarai Falls, adjacent to a small town, Periakulam about 60 km from my place, Madurai. At present, I am working in Karaikal, a spot about 300 […]
The locals actually call this fall Horsetail Falls, not sure why. It is indeed seasonal. My partner and I have driven past this fall a number of times, most times there is water going over it but on other occasions there is none. The road coming out of Queenstown, named 99 bends by locals, hides […]
I loved Wailua Falls. We hiked to the bottom and swam in the gigantic pool. We got such beautiful pictures of our family. The hike was not well marked and very steep. We did not take the route that people have died on. The book Kauai Revealed told us of another trail head to take. […]
We found Alapena Falls first. Tons of mosquitos, not a deep enough pool to swim, lots of litter from beer bottles to other trash around the shore. Not a spectacular falls. Then my friends tried to take a shortcut back to the car and found Kapena Falls. Much prettier, still lots of mosquitos, less trash, […]
Hello! I thought you might want to see a couple of my photos of Teinefossen called “Pastel night” and “Teinefossen revisited”. Birkeland is my birthplace and this waterfall is one of the most picturesque places in the area (thus there are plenty of magnificent landscape views).
This is actually VERY easy to do, as the falls are within the ROYAL NATAL NATIONAL PARK, administered by Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife and you can stay in the camp TENDELE in the park. It is possible to hike relatively easily to near the bottom of the falls (from within the park itself) and even to […]
Hi, I am from Tamil Nadu, India. I had visited Courtallum Falls in Tirunelveli District, Suruli Falls about 100 Km from Madurai, Tirumurthi Falls at Udumalaipet in Coimbatore District, and Silver Cascade Falls at Kodaikanal. Recently I was reading a serial story in local popular Tamil weekly Megazine ‘Ananda Vikatan’ about a waterfalls known as […]
There is another way to witness Tarawera Waterfalls. By far the best way is via water taxi across Lake Tarawera. This deposits you at the lakes outflow where a good track broadly follows the river until the river begins to vanish. It is wonderfull geology and delightful native forest. Eventually you descend the cliff face […]
Not high or forceful, but I like it.
In 1989 I saw beautiful Svöðufoss waterfall and was amazed. I shot a photo and here it is.
Werrikimbe is a national park that borders on the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park in N.S.W. but it gets a minimum amount of visitors and it helps if you’ve got a 4WD though it’s not essential. I had visited 20 years previously and been impressed with a short walk I did so I returned to […]
Pronounced “tyre” these falls are but one of a multitude that dispense their waters into the Oxley Wild Rivers National Park and ultimately into the Macleay River that runs through Kempsey. These falls are not anywhere near as popular as the nearby Apsley, nor are they as dramatic. No, these suit the keen bushwalker who […]
It was many years ago when I was first taken to this remote spot. You have to go through private property and then through almost trackless national park to get there. The drop into the Macleay Wild Rivers National Park is impressive. People have abseiled down the side on rare occasions and others have walked […]
Waterfalls weren’t on my agenda this particular day. In fact, the amazing tourist railway at Coromandel was all I was thinking of but, as is my wont, I decided to come home on a different road, albeit an unsealed one. Though the route was the shortest back to our accommodation at Tairua, most people avoid […]
Hey there! This website is just absolutely great! I love waterfalls and I have learnt much more from this website. Anyway, just come to talk about Hopetoun Falls in the “Otways”. We’ve been there and we all liked it. I didn’t know it was 30 metres high though. That’s pretty high! The walk to the […]
First, thanks for this cool website its nice to know about hidden gems in our backyard. We went on May 24th, 2008 and had the pleasure of seeing a running stream all the way to Eaton Canyon Falls which were flowing well. Because of kids we chose to start at the Midwick drive trail which […]
I was looking for waterfalls, unashamedly searching the internet for them. Thus it was that I came across Mathinna, situated in an area I’d never been before; but Tassie’s like that, there’s all sorts of stuff just off the main roads if you’re prepared to venture. To get there you have to find Fingal, west […]
I wonder how many “Horseshoe Falls” there are in the world? I’ve certainly seen a few and here is another to add to your collection. Once you’ve admired Tasmania’s most famous waterfall, Russell Falls, there’s a track off to the right that takes you uphill. It ultimately goes to Lady Barron Falls but, en route […]
G’day, I just wanted to say thank you for the work you’ve put into the site, I can almost feel your passion for waterfalls 🙂 I used your site to get some information on Australian waterfalls, recently going to see Lower Kalimna Falls in the Cumberland forest region of the Otway ranges in Southern Victoria.
