Wainui Falls

Wainui Falls

As you drive around Wainui Bay on Abel Tasman Drive, look out for the signposted access road for Wainui Falls. Park in the carpark at the end of the access road, then it’s only about a 30 to 40 minute walk into Abel Tasman National Park. This walk is mostly in native forest alongside the Wainui River, to the waterfall.

Although a short distance, there is plenty to keep you interested. The walk includes a narrow section (with a safety rail and near sheer drop) high above the river, followed by a swing bridge. The final few minutes is a beautiful stroll alongside rapids to the falls.

The perfect way to end a few hours on Abel Tasman Drive!
