  • Waterfall


The power station outflow is the Roaring Meg. The water is the deep alpine blue of glacial streams and the Kawarau River is glorious. The hydroelectric power station harnesses the Kawarau River. The River is Lake Wakatipu’s only outlet. The river flows into Lake Dunstan near Cromwell. The beautiful gorges cut by the river add to the beauty of SH6 between Cromwell and Queenstown. The small power station is supported by a 10 m dam lying 3.6 km north of Roaring Meg waterfall.

Getting there

Look for signage Roaring Meg Power Station, turn onto the indicated side road. There is a car park just past the station.  The waterfall is visible from the car park. There are no toilets.


A great place for gorge photos as well as viewing a waterfall.

Duration: ½ hour
