New Zealand’s elusive Turner Falls

Posted by bryanswan | February 20th, 2016

One of our faithful visitors recently shared a some pretty spectacular footage with us of New Zealand’s  very rarely seen, yet quite obviously spectacular Turner Falls.  According to topographic maps, this waterfall is noted as dropping 265 meters / 870 feet, however the contours of the maps actually contradict this measurement, and suggest that it’s actually more like 380 meters / 1,260 feet tall.  These are the first images we’ve seen of Turner excluding the aerial imagery visible on Google Earth, and it reveals this beast to be even more impressive than we suspected – leading us to suspect that it is indeed much closer to 380 meters tall, and that it may just rank as the 2nd best waterfall in New Zealand, only behind arguably the best waterfall in the southern hemisphere, Sutherland Falls.
