Purakaunui Falls, The Catlins, South Island, New Zealand

The Purakaunui Falls is a cascading multi-tiered waterfall on the Purakaunui River, located in the Catlins region in Otago in the southern South Island of New Zealand. It is an iconic image for southeastern New Zealand, and were featured on a New Zealand postage stamp in 1976. The Purakaunui Falls is the most photographed falls in New Zealand. This 15m waterfall tumbles in three tiers, giving it a certain grace and character that more than makes up for its lack of height.
