A short but hilly walk from the car park on Scenic Drive, through the bush led me to Fairy Falls. This is a 15 metre tall waterfall in the central part of the Waitakere Ranges Regional Park. If you look closely at the top of the falls you can see a walkway going across them. There is a series of upper falls beyond that. This was as far back as I could go without standing in the stream or disappearing into the bush.
