Backyard Adventures – Fairy Falls


Where: The Fairy Falls walk is once again located in the Waitakere ranges. It starts on scenic drive, just past the Waitakere Dam in Auckland, New Zealand.

When: Year round! This is beautiful to do when it’s just been raining as there is more water in the falls. Be careful though as there is one stream crossing!


The Fairy Falls walk is a one way track down to a beautiful set of waterfalls, ending with one big one at the bottom.

It takes about 30 minutes to get down to the bottom so a bit longer to get back, that’s right, it’s ALL down hill to the falls which means a bit of an up hill struggle on the way back. (it’s TOTALLY worth it).

I hadn’t seen photos before so I originally thought that is was just some little falls, but then I got to the bottom and I was blown away. Definitely one not to miss!
