The journey continues: Marokopa Falls
The approach to Marokopa Falls
The short walk from the car park quickly takes you into an 'enchanted forest'
Some amazing trees - they must provide a fantastic world for small creatures
As you get closer you begin to hear, and smell, the fresh powerfull waterfall
The suns rays catch a delicate spider web hidden amongst the twisted trees
The stunning Marokopa Falls
The falls are often described as the most beautiful in the country
The falls are a popular spot for visitors and the little viewing platform gets you near enough to feel the spray on your face
The surrounding hillside is covered with dense native bush with the glimpse of limestone
If you enjoyed this and would like to see other stunning waterfalls look at my earlier post : Falling Waters of New Zealand
Next time I will post about another of natures wonders (just down the road from the falls) – The Mangapohue Natural Bridge where we stayed overnight and had a truly amazing experience!

Thank you 🙂
nice one Vicki, good to see other people enjoy the places we do.. have you been on the Ruakura walk just as you go past Waitomo caves, heading in the Marakopa direction? Turn left at the little roundabout and follow the road for about 1-2k, little carpark, barbeque and a nice walk – good blog 🙂
Thanks Steve – will give it a look sometime.
Watch out for my post on the natural bridge next 😉
