Nuff said! A large sandy pool at the base of an amazing waterfall.  Click on the pic to see the wee lil person basking in the glory of Shine falls!

    My wife and I visited Shine Falls a couple of days ago (Christmas day, 2015) and were disappointed to see 8 other cars in the car park. We ran into 3 groups of hikers on the trail to the falls and 2 more groups at the falls themselves. The hike was gorgeous and the falls fantastic, no complaints there! But you may have to nudge the “obscur-o-meter” needle a bit off the obscure axis. Nevertheless, we loved Shine falls!

    Scott,

    Love your NZFrenzy North Island book so far. It’s been a great visit. I wish we looked at your website before searching for Shine Falls. Once we reached the Car Park, we noticed there are no signs point in the direction to the Falls. Well we “chose poorly” and went in the wrong direction. Thought you would want to know to help your readers not make the same blunder we did. Looking at the picture of the rocks, I gather we are to cross over the fence and walk in the Kiwi area towards the mountains, is that correct? Maybe next visit we will find them.

    Sincerely,

    David
