Backyard Adventures – Fairy Falls

IMG_3706

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!

What:

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!
