The 35 m high falls are often described as the most beautiful in the country. Here the Marokopa River cascades over the undercut greywacke basement rock.
Take the short track through tawa and nikau forest down to the viewing platform.
Combine this walk with Mangapohue Natural Bridge Walk and Piripiri Cave Walk on a scenic drive from Waitomo to Marokopa.
Marokopa Falls is 15 km east of Marokopa and 31 km west of Waitomo, on Te Anga Road.
