Built on a British shipyard, Cammell Laird Shipbuilders Ltd, in 1967, was named Ulster Queen. By design was rolkerom (roll-off ferry with horizontal loading) for the transport of vehicles and passengers, looks very similar to the Salem Express. Ship name changed frequently (bad luck), and in 1986 it was renamed Al Kahera, in 1987 in Ala Eddin, in 1988 Poseidonia and finally, in 2005, Al Kahfain. Vessel length 115m, width 17m, 4m draft. Al Kahfain different from the Salem Express absence bow ramp - entry / exit of vehicles was carried out through the stern. Steam up to 150 cars and 275 passengers. For 2005, the Al Kahfain, as a passenger ferry, was assigned to the Port Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. November 2, 2005 ex-Poseidonia returned from Suez to Jeddah, the ship went without passengers, with a crew of 58 people. In the area of the reef of Abu Nuhas in engine ferry was an explosion, a fire broke out, which is to take control failed. The crew left the ship, which drifted to the north-eastern part of Hyndman Reef (local name Sha'ab Sheer). November 3 Al Kahfain sat on reefs near the port of Safaga, where he eventually rolled over and sank up to the keel depth of 24m.

Situated in the centre of the South Island, along the pass between Canterbury and the West Coast, Arthur’s Pass National Park is the third oldest national park in New Zealand. The main road between Christchurch and Greymouth (SH73) travels straight through the centre of the park. One of the world’s great train journeys – the TranzAlpine Express – also passes through the park, offering dramatic views of the mountains and plains.
The top of this spectacular fall (131 metres) can be seen from the main road, but a walk to the base of the waterfall is well worth doing in any weather, any time of the year.
A signpost just north of the Chalet Restaurant points to the carpark where the walk starts. The track goes up the side of the Bealey River and over two footbridges before zig-zagging up steps through the mountain beech forest to the waterfall's base. Return the same way.
