Purakaunui Falls Walk
Located in Catlins coastal area in the Otago region
IntroductionWalk to the well known and often photographed Purakaunui Falls.
The Purakaunui Falls is one of Otago's iconic, most-photographed sights.
The track through mature beech forest, and then beech and podocarp, is suitable for wheelchair users to the top viewing platform. From there the track descends to give the view of the three-tiered falls that’s often seen on calendars and postcards.
There is a carpark, toilets and picnic area.
Purakaunui Falls can be accessed from two roads off the Papatowai Highway. Turn off onto Purakaunui Falls Road 6.3 km south of Owaka, or turn off onto Warnock Road 10.8 km south of Owaka. The falls are signposted at both turn offs.
