Explore Bridal Veil Falls

Rate this Adventure New Zealand Bridal Veil Falls Carpark

Added by Marty JL

An easy walk, not far from the township of Raglan, through native bush to a set of viewing platforms that showcase the beautiful Bridal Veil Falls. Each platform offers a unique view of the falls with some stunning photography spots along the way.

The platforms overlooking the 55m falls from different angles offer unique perspectives of this natural feature. Shaped over time by water flowing across harder volcanic rock onto soft stone below, the falls have a deep pool, which combined with an area surrounded by native bush and wildlife, providing a calm atmosphere as a result.

There are a set of stairs to the lower platforms, which may be more difficult to explore!
