Chasing Waterfalls on the Roaring Billy Falls Walk in New Zealand
It’s hard to go very far in New Zealand without running into some type of walking trail. One of these that is located right off a main roadway is Roaring Billy Falls Walk in New Zealand’s South Island. It’s a good spot to get out and stretch your legs if you’re driving from Franz Josef to Wanaka or Queenstown as it’s a quick twenty minute walk round trip.
When hiking Roaring Billy Falls Walk, you’re also rewarded with a view of a lakeside waterfall at the end of the trail before turning around to make your way back.
The walk itself is very pleasant, too. Trees that look like they should be in a more tropical climate frame the trail along with mountainous shrubs and moss.
An extra hint if you visit Roaring Billy Falls Walk in New Zealand: Sandflies are prominent where there’s water and they will quickly swarm your car so get in and out quickly to avoid doing a lot of bug squashing once you’re back on the road.
