Photo: Fiordland National Park Waterfall Falls Creek Milford Road South Island New Zealand

A waterfall, called Falls Creek, cascades over a series of hard rock shelves in a small canyon surrounded by dense native bush along the Milford Road in Fiordland National Park on the South Island of New Zealand.

Fiordland National Park covers an area of over 1.2 million hectares making it the largest national park in New Zealand. Fiordland which is situated in Southland on the South Island of New Zealand, receives an annual rainfall of between 1200mm to 8000mm - it rains for more than 200 days of the year which accounts for the lush green flora of the national park.

The amount of precipitation also accounts for the numerous waterfalls found throughout the park including the pretty Falls Creek along the Milford Road. After heavy rainfall the clearing weather often reveals thousands of waterfalls which stream from sheer-sided mountain slopes to the valleys below.

The Falls Creek waterfall is a popular stop along the narrow, winding Milford Road as they can be seen from the road. ... continue below the picture...
