Maruia Falls, West Coast, South Island

Not high or forceful, but I like it.

Amateur Photographer (Svodufoss)

In 1989 I saw beautiful Svöðufoss waterfall and was amazed. I shot a photo and here it is.

Werrikimbe Land (King Fern Falls)

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 […]

Tia Falls

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 […]

Steep Drop indeed (Steep Drop Falls)

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 […]

Waiau Falls

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 […]

Multnomah Falls

I haven’t been to many falls, but one of my favorites is Multnomah Falls in Oregon. It is on the Columbia River in the Columbia River Gorge area, which is about 40 to 50 minutes east of Portland. There are also several other waterfalls along that area that are very nice to see and hike […]

Tower Falls Base View

As by Aug 2008, the trail to the base of Tower Falls hasn’t reopened yet. But it is possible to get there, either by climbing the barrier onto the trail (some people do, despite the signs) or getting down to the creek and hiking upstream. It requires climbing a few large boulders though. On the […]

Bridal Steps

I love the waterfalls that looks like a bridal veil. Stepping down from Glory, they are so majestic. Also, I love the ones that are wide and and in layers across one another! They are just beautiful. Remind me of Heaven! And I love quiet and wide layered waterfalls! Sincerely yours, Sylvia

Double Waterfalls (Hydnefossen)

We drove past Hydnefosen on 21 July 2007 and there was a lot more water falling. I would like to add that when we saw these falls while driving on the road (Route 52 heading north/northwest), they looked very high compared to the surrounding valley. I remember thinking that this was something out of Lord […]

That’s Pretty High! (Hopetoun Falls)

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 […]

Sleeping to the Sound of the Falls (Langfoss)

I know this wonderful fall since the 70`s. I´ve often been there, when I was a young man. At that time it was possible to rise up a tent between the fall and the fjord and go asleep at night with this wonderful sound of the water. Today it makes me a little sad to […]

A Wet Day (Eaton Canyon Falls)

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 […]

Jungle Rudy’s

I am 88 yrs old now, but when I was 50 (about?) my husband flew us in our Bonanza to Jungle Rudy’s where we landed in the fields and stayed with him for a few days. He showed us his maps so we could try to fly into the canyon by Angel Falls. It was […]

A World Away (Mathinna Falls)

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 […]

Looking beyond Russell (Russell Falls)

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 […]

Waterfalls in New Zealand

I am quite impressed with the website. Been a waterfall fan myself. I felt I finally found a group that understands what I like! If you catch a train from Auckland and Wellington, there are many nameless waterfalls all the way, especially after Tongariro National Park, and Wellington (All the way till the end, there […]

Travel Wonders

I am from Queensland (Brisbane) though live in Sydney now. Both Qld and NSW have had a lot of rain over the last few months and should promise better waterfalls and generally greener environs than we have had in the last 5 or 6 years. North Qld tends to fall pretty well anyway due to […]

Glen Aulin Hike (Waterwheel Falls)

I’ve never been on a hike more than a mile or two, but I found your site and was inspired to go out to Yosemite and do the Waterwheel trek via Glen Aulin from Tuolomne Meadows. I did it in one day as well, and had a great time. The only downer was that my […]

Otway Ranges

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.
