Beautiful, tranquil great for a day out for families and friends. Take a towel and your swimmers. The walk to the falls is wheelchair friendly although no access to the water.

Amazing waterfall. The park is extremely clean and is definitely worth stopping to view. The walk on the way up to the waterfall is a feast for the eyes

Only 8kms off the highway. A 700m walk, to the swimming hole and the lookout/viewing platform of the falls. There is a lot of signage to stay out of certain areas because of deaths and injuries. Very beautiful and great swimming holes.

Awesome water falls and picturesque walk through rainforest Well worth the visit. You can swim in the lower platform area but be aware of the river flow levels in summer

What an amazing waterfall! This spot was a jem. Even though it's off the main road its well worth it. The small walk up the waterfall area was easy and peasant. The water clean, clear and amazing.
