South Island New Zealand

We left the Banks Peninsula and headed inland towards Mt Hutt / Mt Somers so that we could do one of the walks in the area. This is Sharplin Falls. The walk leaves from the carpark, crosses a bridge at Bowyers Stream and follows it upstream for 45mins through the forest to a catwalk around a bluff before it descends to the falls. Select the photo to see the damage to the track caused by recent earthquake damage. The track was still under repair which made it a little tricky getting to the falls but as you can see they were worth the effort, even in the light rain.
