Point Of Interest

5 from 1 users


Located along the Routeburn Track Great Walk, Routeburn Falls is a cascading waterfall approximately 3 to 4 hours walk from the Routeburn Shelter. You are strongly recommended NOT to attempt this track between early May and late October (outside the Great Walks season). The winter environment in Fiordland and Mt Aspiring National Park is very cold and wet, with ice, snow, avalanches and short daylight hours.

Completed part of track today, to Routeburn Falls and back, 17km return, we are experienced walkers and it took us 6 hours return with plenty of photo stops and lunch at the Routeburn Falls Hut (we obviously took our own). Disagree with the below comment, we loved the track, it's a walk/hike, easy enough, we started in the rain and saw and smelt a completely different forest to when we returned in the sun. The New Zealand Robin are extremely curious. Plenty of different parts to see early on if you want a shorter walk, or of course carry on. Would highly recommend. Find us on Instagram if you like. @twoguysvanlife and @saltyskin
