Points of interest along the walk​

Point 1: Turn off to William Wright Falls

From Orokawa bay Walk up the end of the beach to the creek crossing, look up to the left; you should see the sign pointing to the track and the track running around the side of the creek,
5 Minutes after crossing the creek is the sign post to the falls.
Turn to the left, there was a long drop at the turn off, the lest said about it the better.
This section of the walk can also be very slippery after rain.
As you can see, the walk up the creek is very green and damp, that is because the gully does not see the sun for more the a few hours a day.
Don’t be expecting to see a fantastic water fall.
If you feel like a death defending climb up to an icy cool private pool, be my guest. It was that slippery I only made it to the third step.
