Leaving Raglan and New Zealand’s west coast behind for a while, we turned inland as we headed south to Waitomo. Not far from town, though, we saw a simple sign on the side of the road.
“Bridal Veil Falls, 13km”
On a whim and with a couple of hours to spare, we hit the indicators and followed the sign. It took ten minutes to drive there, and another ten minutes to walk down to the base of the falls.
I think it was worth it.
While the country’s major tourist attractions are justifiably famous, it’s the random things off the main roads that make New Zealand special.
