The Waterfall Stirling might be considered best visited by boat. Its relatively small stream of water usually is accompanied by a further two smaller waterfalls. Stirling is abounding in water all year round with all the other waterfalls within the Fiordland because they are powered by glaciers. The most wonderful view of Stirling is in the spring months when the snows melts which enhances the water power.
