The Fairy Falls Track
Cascade Kauri Regional Park
25km from Auckland CBD
1.5 Hours to the Falls and back
Dogs: On leash
An awesome jaunt into the Waitakere ranges wilderness! The Rimu, nikau groves and kauri you pass on the way to the falls are worth it on their own, but the Fairy Falls themselves make the whole mission epic. The upper section of the falls are tiered with a couple of nice swimming holes so bring your swimmers and get wet, a magical experience only 30 minutes from the CBD
How do I get there?
The simplest way to get to theWaitakere Ranges from downtown Auckland is tohead to West Coast Rd via New North Rd and Great North Rd.
West Coast Rd eventually merges with Scenic Dr. Follow that for about 5km and you will find the car park for Fairy Falls was on the left.
