Waterfall enthusiasts will love how easy it is to get to Owharoa Falls in the Waikato Region of New Zealand's North Island. There's a few roadside parking spots, and from your car to the base of the falls is a quick five minute walk which includes a few stair steps. It's nice to just relax and listen to the sounds of the falling water, or bring a picnic and enjoy a longer visit. There is another waterfall dropping into the same stream a short distance away (plus a third that's much more difficult to reach).

What's your favorite outdoor activity?
We love hiking - especially when the reward at the end of the hike is a waterfall. In the case of Owharoa Falls, it was a really short distance from where we parked our rental car to our first glimpse of the falls. We kept walking (can't even call it hiking) until we had a good angle for a photo before leaving to make our way toward the Coromandel Peninsula.
