Dawson Falls - Mt Taranaki National Park.

Dawson Falls is on the southern side of Mt Taranaki about one hours drive from New Plymouth. Once in the park the drive is very scenic and a pretty decent climb up to around 900m. It is a bit out of the way but clearly on the camper van list of things to do. There are good views of Mt Taranaki as well as the falls themselves.  (Dept of Conservation info)

The falls themselves can be accessed by pathways that while not long have a lot of steps and can be a bit muddy. Having said that the walks are beautiful with that sense of plenty of clean air and all with the sound of the falls in the background.

The falls have probably been photographed a million times because of their easy access but none the less .....
