Lindsay Falls


Lindsay Falls

Due to poor visibility, Lindsay Falls is the most disappointing waterfall, which is reached on the 3th day of the world famous Milford Track. If you can find the better spot apart from the official one, probably, the waterfall will be charming.

Walking and driving instructions


There is only one way to approach these waterfalls - walk the Milford Track (only DOC individual walks and guided walks are available. DOC huts must be booked in advance).

You need to organize a transport to Te Anau Downs where the track starts; then a transport from Milford Sound where the track finishes. Transport can be easily booked as part of Milford Track booking via official DOC site.

Lindsay Falls is approached on the third day of the journey, but there are other waterfalls which are accessible along Milford Track.

There is a sign 'Lindsay Falls' on the Milford Track, so you won't miss it. The waterfall appears after 5-10 minutes of walk past Dudleigh Falls. There is no place to relax there, just take a few photos and continue on to the track.

The view of the waterfall is very poor. Looks like there was a nice lookout platform there, but it was completely destroyed. So now you can see one part of the waterfall is a gap between the trees. This one is ideal for a ‘drone photo’.
