HISTORY AND NAMES
- Lake Unknown Falls is the Unofficial name of this waterfall
We've named the falls after the lake from which they issue.
Like Norway, New Zealand appears to have several large, presumably unnamed waterfalls. However, in this case, we're very surprised to have found no evidence that a waterfall this massive is named. The falls drop out of colorfully named Lake Unknown (we're assuming it was a descriptive), and thunder down the side of the Dart River Valley for almost 700 meters. Tourism companies run jetboat tours up the Dart River, and the falls are quite easily seen from the river, so we assume many people know about the falls, yet very little seems to be published about it. Once we can uncover a little more information, this one could worm its way onto the World's Best list.
