  Cascading Waterfall
by rite_of_spring

The drive from the West Coast to Wanaka passes through spectacular scenery. No one should miss this scenic drive. The road was originally used by the Maori to the West Coast in search for the greenstone. It passes the ocean, the wild cascading waterfalls, river, and brings you to a small town called Makarora, which is a starting point for exploring the spectacular Mount Aspiring National Park.
