  5. weekly waterfall roundup 7: mt. aspiring national park

    On our trip to Mt. Aspiring National Park we saw some nice additions to our waterfall list.

    A 2 minute wheelchair accessible path from SH 6 leads you to Fantail Falls. Wear your gumboots when you visit so you can walk across the shallow river at its base to get a closer look at the waterfall.


    Thunder Falls is also off SH 6 while driving through Mt. Aspiring National Park. It lives up to its name as it thunders down into a river bed.


    The waterfalls on the Rob Roy Glacier Track are spectacular. They rush down cliff faces and are fed by snow and ice capped mountain tops. The track is a moderate 3 hour return. The roughest part is the ride there - unmaintained gravel roads, cattle stops, and 5 or more fords. We made it our Honda Civic though, so you probably can too. Totally worth it.

  6. Karikari Peninsula

  7. We walked throughout Tawharanui Regional Park yesterday. I really enjoyed the variety of terrain you can access by trails - from beach and hilly pastures, to cliffs and lagoon.

    The entire park is an open sanctuary area. Visitors are allowed to enter paddocks with cows or walk through pastures dotted with sheep. We also saw lots of birds: Pukekos, Paradise ducks, Eastern Rosellas, and Variable Oystercatchers.
