Every visitor of the one of the most famous and largest waterfalls of New Zealand can feel its power kilometers away – the deafening noise of the Niagara Falls spreads over many miles and in good weather can be heard on the coast.
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.
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 wonâ€™t meet there anyone at all.
Purakaunui Falls is one of the most photographed falls in New Zealand and it is featured on the postage stamp issued in 1976. In Maori language the word â€œPurakaunuiâ€ means â€œbig heap of firewoodâ€ apparently referring to the surrounding forest.

Surrounded by the endless plains and fields, Grampians mountains range is one of the most popular tourist destinations in western Victoria that offers almost all possible outdoor activities in the same place: hiking and rock climbing, camping, exploring wilderness of mountain ranges and wetlands, swimming and canoeing, fishing or simply sightseeing.
If you happened to be in Katoomba or Leura region of the Blue Mountains on the wet and rainy day – donâ€™t miss Leura Cascades, if you are lucky, they will be filled with water and present a truly nice view.
What I like about Sydney’s Blue Mountains is that among all famous and heavily promoted tourist places you can always find a quiet and serene spot, where you can enjoy the view without being crowded by hundreds of people. Read more…
