Short Walk to Purakaunui Falls

Tarara, New Zealand


Added by Lauren Schusterman

Duration: 20 minutes round trip. Must see sight in Catlins National Forest. Extremely easy, quick walk (suitable for all abilities). Great photo opportunity. Forest scenery.

From the car park, cross the road to the trailhead. Follow the trail through the forest for around 10 minutes. Right before the waterfall there is a short set of stairs down to a viewing platform. Follow the same trail out.
