Dawson Falls' iconic Goblin Forest.  The forest here is quite different to that in most of New Zealand.

    Loved the Enchanted/Dawson Falls loop track, but should warn that in early March 2016, the section from just below the plateau towards East Egmont Visitor Centre (Te Popo) was quite overgrown and some of the steps had been washed out. Trekking pole or long stick useful for revealing where to place feet/lower yourself down the up to 1 metre drops.
