You have the opportunity to explore two waterfalls on a 30 min return trail.There is also an hour-long heritage trail following the old train tracks which were used till 1971. Take a stunning 30-minute track through a sheltered forest thick with mossy trunks and branches. All this leads to Matai Stream in the Catlins Forest Park with two waterfalls, Matai Falls and Horseshoe Falls.Matai Falls. There used to be a sizable township (Caberfeidh), today little remains, just nature regenerating and the falls, which resemble a bridal veil. If you look carefully you might spot the remains of the Catlins Branch railway as you travel south – much of the track formation remains today. Regular grooved tracks are a good clue.
