This seasonal guide to waterfalls recommends the best time of year and the
best time of day to visit each waterfall using hydrologic knowledge to get the most out of your visit.
It ensures you have the best chance of seeing water flowing over the falls in full sun.
Compiled by hydrologist Brad Neal, the guide also includes information about
how to get there, facilities available, viewing angles, waterfall dimensions, swimming opportunities,
a photo/video and my personal impressions.
At the current time, the guide to waterfalls in
Australia is the most complete, followed by waterfalls that I have visited in New Zealand. This website only
includes waterfalls that I have personally visited and photographed.

This is my compilation of waterfalls in Australia, from the red rock escarpments on the Northern
Territory, to the granite cliffs surrounding the ACT, to the basalt column sinks of Victoria. Visit
the tropics at the start of dry season (Apr and May) when road access resumes, and then head south to
watch the breaking rains in winter bring waterfalls back to life in southern Australia…
The list includes waterfalls that I have visited in the Canterbury Region of the South Island, including
ice covered waterfalls up in the mountains at Arthurs Pass and a lush waterfall deep in the Peel Forest near Geraldine…
Waterfalls in Fiji are coming soon!
