The Omanawa Falls are undoubtedly one of the most beautiful waterfalls in all of New Zealand, considering the heavy amount of falls that exist in the country. The waters are crystal clear and have a tealish tinge, and the temperature of the water stays mostly chilly. The 35 meter tall waterfalls drop down into a small water body surrounded by lush green forests, making it appear like a natural oasis. The official paths down the falls have been closed off, but they might be reopened in the late summer of 2019.
Ever since the falls have been sealed off, there has been a significant lack of tourists, but it does not deter many from making the trip down to the falls to bathe in its beautiful waters. Since it is highly risk to hike down the unofficial track, it is advisable for tourists who don’t have a lot of experience with climbing or hiking or are physically unable to do so, to not go to the bottom of these waterfalls. Locals in and around the region are always willing to help with the trip, but it is still extremely risky to follow the rough path, so tourists usually visit these falls at their own risk.
