Spent 3 hours with walking and swimming in 2 spots. Kids had a blast. Water cool but still enjoyable.

Loved it, very peaceful and with breath taking waterfalls, lovely walk through the rain forest to see the waterfalls, lots of wildlife around and wish I lived here as I would be coming here most weekend to chill out

Crystal Cascades is beautiful! But be prepared for a long walk to get there from the car park! Plenty of swimming holes to swim in and beautiful sights to see
