Walking and driving instructions

 

Pokeno Waterfalls are roughly a 40-50 minutes' drive away from Auckland City. The road surface is always sealed.

Note: Google probably doesn’t know about this address yet, so just follow these instructions: If you drive from Auckland City, travel south on the SH1 motorway until you reach Pokeno Exit (1km past SH2 turn off). Exit from the motorway, then on a round-about turn left onto Dean Rd, then turn right onto Fraser Rd. Turn right onto Market St, then immediately turn left onto McIntosh Dr (you’ve almost arrived). Follow McIntosh Dr for 400m, then turn right (you will see the parking and bridge from the intersection). In roughly 150m you will reach the parking (8 car’ spaces). There are no facilities there.

From the parking, cross the steam via a vehicle’ bridge, then turn left and follow the stream. The walking track is still under construction but it’s obvious where the path will be in the nearest future. ‘The path’ descends to the stream bed. Here you will see 2 waterfalls – the main one, on the left, and the second cascade, on the right. You can come very close to the main waterfall, and also there is some sort of bench nearby. The second cascade is seen from a distance and can’t be easily accessible.

Return via the same route. Total walking time is about 10-15 minutes.
