Pepina Falls, Palmerston Hwy, Nov 2009

Just returned to USA after a week in Australia. Used your waterfall listings and maps to make a nice day driving tour. We loved the Palmerston Hwy drive. We saw some wild peacocks on the side of the road too. I notice your location for Pepina Falls is not quite right. Yours matches the one […]

Mountain Apples

I was stationed at Schofield Barracks from 1980-1983. I was introduced to Sacred Falls by some locals at my church. My fondest memory was climbing the hillsides on the trail to Sacred Falls. The Mountain Apples ripe. I’ve never seen anything like them before or since. They tasted like an apple but have the consistency […]

Sylvia Falls

First of all, thank you very much for this great site! Part of the Wentworth Falls – at the very end of the round track. I would say this waterfall is about 15m tall 2 CommentsOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment

Haloku Sea Cliffs and Waterfalls, Moloka’i, Hawai’i

Haloku are often called the World’s tallest sea cliffs. They rise 3,250 feet, a full kilometer. I ran 78 commercial trips down Koolau Moloka’i in the 1980’s but since it was summer (the only time safe to kayak) we never saw Haloku pumping. On my Hurricane John honeymoon trip in August 1995 we did see […]

Hjalparfoss is great – don’t miss it

I visited Hjalparfoss with a British group in 2008. We had been to many of the famous large falls and Gullfoss is still top of the list for sheer overpowering grandeur. BUT Hjalparfoss is so beautiful and peaceful. We just sat on the grassy slope, ate our sandwiches and soaked it up. It’s wonderful, And […]

Kahiwa Falls

Kahiwa Falls, Hawai’i’s tallest consistent waterfall during the Hurricane John trip. Amporn is wearing a shirt for wind protection. Excuse the quality – this shot is from a 1995 slide. 2 CommentsOnly logged in users can post a comment Please login or sign up to comment

Papalaua Falls

I am extremely familiar with Papalaua Falls. I used to run kayak trips down Koolau, Moloka’i and will again someday. I also made two documentaries including the falls. “Moloka’i’s Forgotten Frontier” won a 1985 Emmy Award and the US Outdoor Writers Council “Teddy” for Best Environmental Education production of the year. “Moloka’i’i, Child of the […]

Shikishima Waterfall (Shikishima-no-taki)

You saw MUCH more water here than I did. Hagoromo is easily the Japanese waterfall I was most curious about prior to my visit to Japan. For what it’s worth, I also found the trail to Shikishima-no-taki closed, but Yusemi, the wonderful man who showed us around merely shrugged and motioned us to come along. […]

Dagg’s is my brother in law!!!

How nice to be in a very green and clean countryside… I love the falls… Dagg, Brown and Queen Mary’s Falls. I have been there 3x and I took so many pictures. You can revitalise your spirit and to be in touch with nature… it can take your stress away. I just couldn’t imagine that […]

Memorable visit to Queensland (Killarney)

I’ve been in Queensland last December 2008-March 2009. I visited my sisters in Killarney and my brother in law is a Dagg… I was fascinated to see all the pictures specially the fall in Killarney… these are the places I’ve been visited and took a lot of photos and memorable memories with my family. The […]

Terraced Falls Hike

So I was looking around and found your site (really like it). Recently I went on a trip to Yellowstone with a friend and our main goal was to check out waterfalls. We saw many pull-over falls, Union Falls and Terraced Falls. The hike to Terraced Falls was pretty intense. We got about 1/2 way […]

Carlon Falls found!

Carlon Falls was a great find because it was a hot Saturday. We needed a place to swim near our camp (5 miles outside the west gate), but didn’t want to fight the crowds inside Yosemite National Park. We almost had the place to ourselves! 1 CommentOnly logged in users can post a comment Please […]

Aloha from Twin Falls, Maui, Hawaii

I live at Twin Falls. Most tour books don’t tell you that in order to access Twin Falls you need to pass through private property. Please show respect towards the residents by keeping the noise volume at a minimum. We allow free passage to our treasured falls so all can enjoy. Aloha. 0 CommentsOnly logged […]

Akaka Falls – Big Island Hawaii April 2009

I’ve been there (Akaka Falls) in Oct. 1988 / Sept. 1992 / June 1994 / Oct. 2000 & most recently April 2009 & it was very wet & rainy every time. However, renting a car & driving on Rte. 220 thru the tiny town of Honomu, HI & buying the best Tropical Flavored ice cream’s […]

Trash and Water

We have decided to start hiking this Summer to embrace nature and give us something to do. So we purchased a book which lists several hiking trails that lead to waterfalls and such. We started our hike late which made the ordeal a little more challenging due to the hot weather. The trail takes you […]

Memories of Likeke Falls

I was stationed at Kaneohe Marine Corps Air Station 1970 to 1972 and frequented the Likeke water falls (Oahu). Back then there was a trail off of the highway and was able to park my old 1965? 283ci Chevy Impala at the roads edge. The trail was hard to distinguish and one needed to be […]

Since 1962 (Rancheria Falls)

I have been coming to Huntington Lake since 1962 (bragging rights, which long time visitors are apt to tell anyone who will listen). We usually stay a week at Lakeview Cottages on the other side of the lake. At least once during that week, we would trek to the falls. It is an easy hike, […]

Billygoat Falls, New Zealand

In the Kauearanga Valley near Thames at the start of the Coromandel peninsula is a mighty falls named Billygoat Falls. The Department of Conservation states in their Kauearanga Valley brochure a total cumulative fall of 180m. If this is the case, then the Billygoat Falls are in fact the tallest cumulative waterfall in the North […]

Amazing Experience (Eaton Canyon Falls)

We took our family on a hike to see Eaton Canyon Falls in June 2009. On the hike we saw many interesting animals like a blue tailed skink lizard, frogs and a water snake. It was the most amazing feeling to swim in clear water and to stare up at this beautiful waterfall. Then to […]
