Wednesday morning we set out early on the road towards Waitomo via a 100km detour along the North Island’s west coast. About an hour south of Hamilton, we stopped first at Bridal Veil Falls. The falls lie among the bush about ten minutes from the carpark. Upon arriving, we agreed that Breidal Veil Falls are among the most impressive we have seen thus far in New Zealand. After a quick hike to the bottom to get a different vantage point, we headed back to the car to continue our journey.
