  • A good place to stop en route to or from Milford Sound. A short walk through native forest takes you over the rushing river with great views of the gorge and pot holes ground out by the rocks.  more »
  • This short walk is located in Fiordland National Park between Milford Sound and the town of Te Anau. You sare a little to take the exit from the road to the parking lot and from there just a few steps starts the circuit. You pass by bridges and you come across a waterfall that falls hard and has given a peculiar shape to the rocks of the place. It is a good reward for the little effort that is made to make the walk. As an extra bonus in the parking lot you'll surely come across some Kea, new Zealand's endemic endangered birds.
