McKenzie Falls, ROTORUA

Fabulous falls. Start from the end of Endean road, which is on your left shortly after Paradise Valley on Paradise Valley Rd, (gravel road)You need to walk some forestry roads. It was a very wet day when we went and we went off track here and there, but this will get you where you need to go. It was not well marked and we added a few markers but watch carefully. There is a small stream crossing, not deep or slippery. The rocks by the falls are okay too. There are slippery patches to get to the falls, but as it was raining hard when we went it is hard to judge how it would normally be Once we got to the first waypoint we went in an anticlockwise direction. The whole thing took us about 4 and half hours at a leisurely pace and mucking about at the falls. According to my friend's gps the falls are at S38.07.570, E 176.06.240.

  • pmcke pmcke I presume the falls are in the bit of bush on the NW extremity of the track?

  • mineemo Can't seem to edit my post, so, to continue... once we got to the first waypoint we went in an anticlockwise direction. The whole thing took us about 4 and half hours at a leisurely pace and mucking about at the falls.
