Mount Damper Falls, New Zealand

Image from pinimage

Located in the Waitaanga Conservation Area, this waterfall is 74 metres high and can be viewed from two lookout platforms.

Because the access track crosses farmland, no dogs are allowed. The area is located on New Zealand's North Island and can be approached from the Forgotten World Highway.

The Taranaki area was formed by slippage  between the Pacific and Australian tectonic plates. This area is one of New Zealand's most active volcanic regions. However Mount Taranaki (aka Mount Egmont) is now extinct.
