I'm Marios, delivering the best of Aotearoa's nature walks to your device.
I've personally walked hundreds of New Zealand's tracks and spent months in libraries uncovering interesting information on New Zealand/Aotearoa. And you'll find a slice of that research on this page - enjoy!

Both waterfalls are small and pretty, but not spectacular. They trickle over bluffs in rivulets, resembling brocades of jewellery. The white of the water is highlighted by deep green mosses, which encrust the surface and take advantage of abundant moisture.
Matai Falls are signposted on the left 5.5 km east of Maclennan, where there’s a large parking bay. The track starts over the footbridge.
This undulating metalled track follows the gully to Matai Falls. Horseshoe Falls are a few minutes further.
Horseshoe Falls are so named because of the shape of the bluff they tumble over.

Short and easy walk into the forest where you can see two awaiting waterfalls!
High bushes so no great views. A lot of birds around. The waterfall is reached via a branch track, nice spot.
Without spending money you can have nice walks through the rainforest and see a lot of beautiful waterfalls. Quiet places to calm down.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
