Walk through stunning native bush on the way to Wainui Falls, the largest falls in Golden Bay.
Follow the track as it crosses open farmland and enters a native forest of nikau palms, rata trees and ferns. Here the track climbs rapidly, occasionally offering glimpses of the Wainui River some distance below.
Along the way keep a look out for New Zealand's giant native snail, Powelliphanta. Look but don't touch!
Cross the river at the swing bridge and a few minutes later you will hear the thunder of the falls, before they appear suddenly, curtained in a halo of spray.
