The 22 m falls are on the Tautuku River in Catlins Conservation Park and are often described as the most spectacular in the region. The walk to the falls, though uphill, is not too steep and very pleasant.
It passes through a variety of forest and shrub types: huge tree fuchsia, stands of olearia and podocarp forest.
Turn off Chaslands Highway onto Rewcastle Road 11.6 km south of Papatowai. It's a further 3 km to the car park.
The track experienced a landslip in March 2019. Further slips may occur during heavy rain, wind or freeze-thaw.
