McLean Falls

A waterfall not to be missed

Listen to the native birds as you walk through beautiful Southland bush to a spectacular 22 metre cascade waterfall surrounded on both sides by dark-green mossy rocks. 
A must see waterfall in New Zealand!

To get there turn off the Chaslands Highway onto Rewcastle Road 11.6 km south of Papatowai. It's a further 3 km to the car park. The walk from this point is mostly easy going along a well maintained track through native forest. There are a few steep steps to climb and some parts are wet underfoot but this is a walk the whole family can do. The striking finale is worth the effort!

Car park to falls – 20 minutes one way.
