The Waterfall

Kids, don't try this at home...

Kids, don’t try this at home…

Auckland has its own ‘urban waterfall’: a 6 metre drop at Oakley Creek, Waterview (access it from Great North Road opposite Oakley Ave). When I went there a couple of days ago, I was treated not only to a generous flow of water after the rain, but also half a dozen youths frolicking in the chilly waters as if summer had broken out…

(The sign in the background warns “No jumping to diving. Shallow water and underwater obstructions.”)
