New Zealand is rightfully considered as one of the untouched and purest places on Earth, but even there some places are more untouched than the others. One of such regions, Catlins, is a home for a 22 meter high McLean Falls, the most spectacular in the area.
No trip to New Zealand’s South Island is complete without visiting at least one of its’ famous glaciers located on the west coast of the island. Among them is a 13 km long Fox Glacier, named after a former Prime Minister of New Zealand Sir William Fox. Descending from almost 3000m to just 300m above the sea level and ending in a rainforest, this glacier is one of the few of this kind in the world.
Oaklands Falls is one of those rare locations where you can still enjoy Blue Mountains and surrounding rainforest without being disturbed by tourists passing every now and then, and, in fact, it is very likely that you won’t meet there anyone at all.
