Raukawa Falls

Posted by

As seen from the viewpoint just off from State Highway 4

Raukawa Falls - a 15m block waterfall located on the Mangawhero River.

After a landslide of the waterfall channel last year, the falls are now narrower and reported to be less spectacular.

(I would be tempted to argue that as the volume of water flowing through the falls remains the same relative to the geographic conditions of the Mangawhero river, therefore a narrower channel for the water to travel would in fact make for a more dramatic sight - but that is based purely on assumption!)
