A travel blog entry by dewdsontour


... The falls were impressive with enough water discharged from them to fill 5 Olympic sized swimming pools per second! The volume plus the white/blue colour of the water and spray makes these the most photographed falls in NZ (apparently). After the falls visit we headed off into town to see the harbour which had a float plane and a mixture of boats moored in it and then found a lakeside restaurant for a serving of "fush and ...
