Summer is here and everybody is wanting the perfect gram photo. And what gets more likes than the good old waterfall?
Fortunately for you we’ve explored some of the best waterfalls Auckland has to offer to keep your gram looking fire all summer long.
Starting with arguably the best waterfall in the Auckland region, we bring you Mokoroa Falls. The walk to the lookout is just 30 minutes, but we definitely recommend walking down to the base of the falls and seeing them in all their glory. For those brave enough, make sure you enjoy a shower right under the falls!
Piha has many reasons to visit, but Kitekite Falls is reason alone to visit. Walk 20 minutes along the Kitekite track to get to the base of the three-tiered waterfall. We’d definitely advise you to take the 10 minute walk to reach the rock pools over looking the top of the falls.
Just south of Piha you’ll find the Karekare. Like its more famous neighbour, Karekare also has a pretty sweet waterfall. The secluded falls rarely attract the masses so it’s the ideal place for a romantic picnic with your lover.
Wanting to avoid the crowds? Head to Lake Wainamu. Walk through the water or over the dunes until you reach the lake, don’t forget a board to ride the dunes into the lake! To get to the falls take the loop track around the lake. Here the stream cascades over a series of small waterfalls towards the lake.
If you like stairs and/or waterfalls then Fairy Falls is for you as it has both. The long walk through the native forest is definitely worth it when you reach the falls. The 3km loop track takes around an hour and half to complete, but you can cool off in one of nature’s pools.
