Dawson Falls Visitor Centre

Dawson Falls Visitor Centre provides a stunning introduction to Egmont National Park. At the top of Manaia Road is a visitor centre and mountain lodge with great views of Mt Taranaki and Fanthams Peak, the lower peak on the south side of Taranaki.

Several relatively short walking and hiking options from the visitor centre 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 around Taranaki.
