Mount Damper Falls is a waterfall on the North Island of New Zealand. It is located in the Stratford District in Taranaki. At 74 metres, the falls are one of the highest in the North Island,although they rank behind Wairere, Ananui and Waitakere Falls.

It is sometimes claimed that it is also the second highest falls in New Zealand but this is incorrect. Mount Damper Falls is dwarfed by many waterfalls on the South Island such as Browne Falls (619m or 836m) and Sutherland Falls (580m).

The seventy-four-meter waterfall Demper is one of the highest waterfalls in the North Island. Located far from large settlements, it allows you to admire your direct, sheer drop in a peaceful atmosphere of peace and quiet. Floating on rocks the water creates fanciful visual effects – flowing silver, shimmering with all the colors of the rainbow, subtropical rainfall.
