Waterfalls in NZ ...Part III


By dwyllis


A further blog on some of the plethora of waterfalls we have here in NZ. They are far too numerous to count. I have seen & photographed a few of them, but too many for me to view in whatever active lifetime I have left. Still ……we do go bush-trekking at least once a month, so we are sure to stumble across more of these hidden treasures. Who knows just what lays around the next bend?

totally amazing and incredibly beautiful!

do people try to 'collect' them as it were and try to visit all of them ~ in the same way as some people go 'monroe bagging' here ~ ie they try to climb all the hills over 3000 ft high.

Fantastic Dwyllis - I was wondering how you were getting on with planting your new garden over there.
What is the geological rock of New Zealand, is it granite ?
Saved on my favourities.
Thank you for thinking of us hibernating in the U.K.

Thankyou everyone. seaburngirl ......North Island & sieve. Sticki ....we don't deliberately go out searching for waterfalls, but we still do a bit of bush-trekking & I always do an Internet search of the area before we head off ...if the area is hilly & has a river winding through it, there is bound to be a waterfall somewhere nearby, & we try to track it down. Unless the area is a conservation site for endangered or rare native bird species, we always take Loki, our now almost seven month old golden retriever, with us. He loves those bush treks. Our papillon gets very anxious on car trips, so sadly he is not able to do bush walks with us, unless not far from where we live. I guess there are people who travel around NZ visiting waterfalls, but many are relatively inaccessible without a long hike through rugged bush land. At our age, we don't do those tough hikes anymore.
