About Horsetail Falls

Just 5kms from Queenstown in the small town of Gormanston is Horsetail Falls, a large seasonal waterfall on Moore Creek. In 2016 work commenced on building a safe walking track / board walk to a viewing platform of the waterfall, and was completed in early 2017.  The view from the platform has a rather side on vantage of Horsetail Falls with excellent panaromic views looking towards the mountains to the south, and towards to ocean to the west.

Horsetail Falls is seasonal, and is best seen in the winter and spring.
