Dawson Falls Visitor Centre

Dawson Falls Visitor Centre

Dawson Falls provides a stunning introduction to Egmont National Park. There is a visitors center and mountain lodge at the top of Mainaia Road, with great views of Mt Taranaki and Fanthams Peak, the lower peak on the south side of Taranaki.

From the visitor centre, there are several relatively short walking and hiking options which provide a great introduction to the national park. These include Dawson Falls (the actual waterfall) and Wilkie Pools, plus sections of Goblin Forest. Fanthams Peak is also accessible from Dawson Falls as is the track network that runs all the way around Taranaki.
