Hike to Devils Punchbowl Falls, Arthur's Pass

New Zealand Devils Punchbowl Trailhead

Added by

Beautiful walk through New Zealand bush to a fantastic waterfall.

An awesome 1 hr return walk in natural New Zealand bush. At the apex of the track is the fantastic Devils Punchbowl Falls with water constantly plummeting 131 metres off of the edge of the hill face above which can be seen from the main road through Arthur's Pass. Very well signed and easy to find, an adventure for everyone visiting the area.

  • Food and water
  • Warm clothes in colder months from march through til september as the weather can be unpredictable in the area.

Side Trip

Great little side trip to an impressive waterfall. Easy track to follow, only 30 minutes, not a bad way to fill a morning. I was able to do this and another trek in the area in the same day.
