Maruia waterfall Maruia waterfall

Maruia Falls are a short distance from the swing bridge. An easy 10 minute walk from the carpark. (SH65). The waterfalls are the result of the 1929 Murchison earthquake which forced the Maruia Rivercut a new channel over an old river bank. The 10 metre falls are easily accessible from SH65 and are only a short 5-minute walk from the roadside car park. The roar of water hitting the deep pools is background to the wide sweep of waterfalls easily visible from the track. This torrent of water is joining up with the Buller River increasing its volume to create the natural spectacle of the Buller gorge.
