Topsy Falls

Topsy Falls

Topsy Falls is marked on Topo Maps NZ as a 37-metre waterfall near State Highway 6. It can’t be seen from the road, although the existence of a hidden gorge is reasonably obvious as you drive by. Access is very easy, with roadside space for parking near the bridge over Robinson Creek, which runs over the Falls and through the gorge.

Walk alongside the stream into the start of the gorge, and you will see a lower section of the waterfall without getting wet. From here, there is a bit of a waterhole, and you may need to wade if you want to get a better view.

Robinson Creek and Topsy Falls are about 3.5 km north of Haast Pass along State Highway, 6.5 km north of Wilson Creek and about 1.5 km south of the better-known Fantail Falls.
