Feel the full force and sound of fresh mountain water falling 131 m down one of New Zealand’s most stunning waterfalls. It's one of the Department of Conservation's best short walks.
From the start of the walk, follow the footbridge across the Bealey River. The next bridge, over Devils Punchbowl Creek, has a good view of the waterfall. From here, wander through lush beech forest with friendly fantails/pīwakawaka and tomtits before climbing 150 m up a series of steps to a viewing platform at the base of this spectacular waterfall.
Return on the same track.
Nature and conservation
Kea love this place as much as people do. There’s also a good chance you’ll hear or see the great spotted kiwi/roroaduring a twilight evening walk.
How to get here
The track starts at the northern end of Arthur's Pass village, just off SH73 at the Punchbowl car park (signposted off the highway).
