Koropuku Falls

Charming 10 metre high waterfalls

The least known waterfalls in The Catlins but worthy of a visit!

Located approximately 24 km south from Papatowai. Look out for a small carpark area on the side of the road next to a sign "Koropuku Falls".  The track can be muddy and slippery so take care.

This waterfall was almost forgotten until two locals Wayne Allen and Peter Hill, with approval from the Department of Conservation, worked to transform the overgrown forest into a single lane track to the falls. The project took 15 years to complete.

Return track duration 40 minute return.
