Photo: Maruia Falls West Coast South Island New Zealand

The Maruia Falls in Maruia Falls Scenic Reserve, thunder over the rock ledges on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand.

Tourists to the West Coast of the South Island in New Zealand are always impressed when they take the time out to view the Maruia Falls in Maruia Falls Scenic Reserve. The width of the falls spans for ten meters and rushes over the rocks crashing into the river below.

A major earthquake was the cause of the creation of the Maruia Falls as the bottom of the lower part of the river was adjusted by a meter. The sinking of the land continued after the earthquake and Maruia Falls now drops over the ledges for ten meters.

The beauty of the Maruia Falls is well worth the trip when visiting the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand for its scenery. Others who are thrill seekers, run the Maruia River in kayaks and the extremely brave will make the drop over the falls in their kayaks.
