the falls and the surrounding area were quite busy even though we were in the middle of the worst weather for over 3 months - plenty to see and do and plenty of facilities in the area .

There are 2 walks offered. A short 10 minutes or the one we opted for which took approximately 45 minutes. There are some steep and uneven parts to the walk. But it's worth it to see the waterfalls. I took it at my own pace...More
