Hidden Falls

Hidden Falls was a waterfall that I really was torn about visiting because I knew that it was pretty far into the Hollyford Track (at least far enough to make me question whether we should do it…

McLean Falls

McLean Falls was one probably either our favourite or second-most favourite waterfall in the Catlins Forest Park or Southern Scenic Drive (the other waterfall was Purakaunui Falls)…

Matai Falls

Matai Falls was the second of the Catlins waterfalls that Julie and I visited towards the tail end of our first trip to New Zealand in early December 2004. This falls was said to be about 10m tall…

Purakaunui Falls

Purakaunui Falls was probably the one waterfall in the Catlins area that received the most attention because it seemed to have fronted postcards and calendars more so than the others in the area…

Barrs Falls

Barrs Falls was the last of the Catlins waterfalls that we visited during our honeymoon trip in 2004. This was a pretty unique-looking waterfall in that its underlying rock made the water ripple…

Stirling Falls and the Milford Sound Waterfalls

Stirling Falls was the second of two permanent waterfalls that we encountered in the Milford Sound (with Bowen Falls being the first one). Since this waterfall was far deeper into the fiord…

Bowen Falls

Bowen Falls was the first major waterfall that we encountered while visiting the famous Milford Sound. I felt inclined to give this waterfall its own write-up because there was a trail that left…

Sutherland Falls and the Milford Track Waterfalls

Sutherland Falls had to have been by far the mightiest waterfall in New Zealand. Ever since Julie and I knew of its existence, we made it a point to journey to this waterfall no matter how…

Browne Falls, Cleve Garth Falls, Helena Falls, and the Doubtful Sound Waterfalls

Browne Falls could very well be the tallest waterfall known in New Zealand so far as it was said to be 619m or 838m (depending on who you talk to and what the height criteria was based on). However…

Christie Falls and the Milford Highway Waterfalls

Christie Falls was a roadside waterfall right besides a narrow single-lane bridge on the Milford Sound Highway. Because it was next to a sign that said “Falls Creek”, I’d imagine this waterfall…

The Chasm

The Chasm was really more of a nature walk than a waterfalling experience, but I’m including a write-up about it because there really was a waterfall within the narrow potholed gorge. The problem…

Humboldt Falls

Humboldt Falls was one of the more dramatic waterfalls that we experienced in New Zealand. It was hard to believe that this waterfall seemed to be one of the better kept secrets in Fiordland…
