Hike from the Akaroa town through neighborhood streets to Newton’s Waterfall. A quick hike for a pretty substantial reward at the end

Very easy walk up from the town through a nice neighborhood. Walking on the dirt road not very exciting but ok. Waterfall was pretty but not huge.

A fun easy hike from town. Most is on a country road. Only last 10 mins to the waterfall was on trail.

Very nice walk but would rate this as moderate.

der Wasserfall ist wunderschön. Generell die kleine Region um den Wasserfall hat etwas mystisches und schönes. Der Weg wird begleitet von dem Fluß, wodurch man eine ständige Geräuschkulisse von rauschendem Wasser hat, nur wird dadurch der Weg auch sehr schlammig und rutschig. Man kann auch mit dem Auto direkt bis zum misty Peaks Reserve fahren, wodurch man sich den recht steilen Anstieg in der Stadt spart. kommt man jedoch in der Saison, wird hier vermutlich nicht genügend Parkmöglichleiten geboten.

genuinely it was one the easiest trek I have ever done. it is doable even for 10 years old kid. It took me 40 minutes to get up there and probably 30 minutes to get down. I tried to go beyond the waterfall but as it was raining, I slipped many time there. Most of the trail was mud though. Surely It is beautiful.

Most of the trail is dirt road. Part of the trail involves hopping three fences, very easy. Beautiful flower garden. The actual trail is great; the waterfall is perfect, cold.
