What can we do at Washpen Falls?
The Adventure Walk: Walk the fascinating track (most of which is natural but partly boardwalk for your convenience) which takes you through an ancient volcanic canyon full of lush native bush and bird life, to the cliff top where one is rewarded by breathtaking views across the Canterbury Plains. On your descent you follow the babbling creek past ponds and beautiful waterfalls.
