Mt Damper Falls

Mt Damper Falls

A swampy tableland at an elevation of 300 metres drains to the headwaters of the Tongapōrutu River over the impressive Mt Damper Falls. With a single drop of 85 metres, the falls are among the North Island’s highest. They are easily reached by a short walk from the Mangapapa Road car park.
