It was a beautiful walk and view of the falls despite us going the day after we had some heavy rain! The water was a bit higher than usual but it didn't stop us from having a little swim. Am definitely going back again.

Visited the Falls for the first time this weekend. What an amazing spot, easy walk down but a little bit harder going back up. Certainly worth it, just a fabulous scenic place to visit. Water quite cold, but once you're in was very refreshing! Plenty...More

I always take the dogs there - lots of stairs, so a bit challenging for little ones ;-)
