Located just 20km from Hamilton and around 15 km from Coleraine, the Wannon Falls present a spectacular display of water flowing down the falls into a deep plunge pool below. The falls were created by basalt lava flow that surged up stream to the Wannon River.

A cantilevered viewing platform located at the falls is easily accessible and offers amazing views of the falls and its stream. Best seen after rainfall, although equally breathtaking when dry.

Close by, a rotunda displays interpretive information where visitors can learn about the geology, flora and fauna and rich Indigenous history of the area.

There is a designated free overnight campground on location at the Wannon Falls with unpowered sites, toilets, picnic tables and barbecues as well as being pet friendly.

The Wannon Falls reserve offers plenty of parking, public toilets, picnic tables and barbecue facilities.
