The water cascades down the tiers of rock ledges and creates a picturesque scene in Otago on the South Island of New Zealand. The autumn leaves that have fallen from the trees above, float down the Purakaunui Falls which adds a colorful display to the already stunning area.These falls are situated in a very quiet area amongst beautiful greenery that grows to its fullest along the Catlins Highway in Otago on the South Island of New Zealand. The falls can be very soothing to the human mind during this time of year but come winter and spring the Purakaunui Falls can be flowing at full force through this unique landscape.To have a look at the Purakaunui Falls, follow a trail for about 10 minutes which will bring you to this tranquil location. The falls are considered to be the most photographed on the South Island of New Zealand as well as on the North Island. Other falls are within a close vicinity of the Purakaunui Falls and are also very scenic but not quite as brilliant as these.Purakaunui Falls, along the Southern Scenic Route, Catlin's Highway, Otago, East Coast, South Island, New Zealand. An easy 10 minute walk from carpark.
