Tawhai Falls

Visit Gollum's Pool

Time: 20 mins return

Grade: Easy

Start: The Tawhai Falls walk is very easy 20 minute walk located just off the road to the Chateau Resort in National Park. Take State Highway 48, drive 2.4km, and the Falls carpark is on the left. Look for signs on SH48 before the Chateau Resort. Check Google Maps Directions

The destination is famous for starring in the Lord of the Rings movie as Gollum's Pool. This easy track leaves the carpark and goes down to the pools and should only take you about 10 minutes to walk to the lookout platform.

5 stars. We booked at Auckland airport. We got picked up literally as we stepped out of airport. Friendly staff took our info and gave us the car keys(near new Rav4). Super simple process and car was in great condition. While dropping the car back Took them 2 minutes to inspect the car and without waiting we got dropped back to airport. Great price and they don't charge anything extra like cleaning etc. I would highly recommend them.
