*The 4km walk from Punamii-unpuu camp site to the Mitchell Falls will be the highlight of your stay, we allow 2-hours to complete the hike. The terrain on this walking trail can be difficult and requires a high level of fitness. Care should be taken due to uneven surfaces, water crossings, cliffs and gorges.
