NZ: The Magnificent Wairere Falls at Matamata

“Hi, may I know how I can get to the Hobbiton Movie Set from here?”
“I’m sorry, Sir. It’s close right now. Tour resumes on Nov 9th.
“Oh well, what about the waterfalls? How do I get there from here?”
“It’s easy. Take the left turn on the second roundabout when you go along this street.”

A.S who just approached the lady with the same question was so excited to hear this.

“Can I join you to the waterfalls?”
“I don’t mind.”


The weather did not treat the 2 of them well that day. The hike up and down was interrupted with intermittent rain and they had only ferns as shelter. Imagine being wet, cold, hungry(lunch to have at the peak) and a little exhausted but the determined 2 made up to the top at last. Yay! The supposedly 1.5 hours tramp up took them much MORE than that. The trail was filled with water puddles and slippery steps served as a great place to have the greatest fall of the year!

At the end of the day, A.S went home contented. It was indeed a great day out albeit the sucky weather. To sum it all up, it was an overall great tramp, superb views, great rides(many rides which included this on the same day), great companies, great next-day-sore as well as pretty pants and shoes! 

                                        Cool, aye? 
       Correction: Actual spelling should be Wairere Falls.
                              *The names here... *sigh...*
