Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I did Hugh’s Dale only as the others are quiet a long walk! It’s well signed and a lovely forest walk saw lots of birds and red crabs on the way! The fresh water stream in a gully had lots of blu & robber crabs!! I didn’t do the steps up to waterfall as it was closed for works but saw the crabs at the base area, so I was pretty happy!!

The Dales have been designated by the Australian Govt for inclusion in the list of wetlands of international importance. We walked to Hugh Dale only and it was a fabulous walk through some really interesting terrain. See photos. The locals told us that we were bound to see Robber crabs and we did. Most of the walk is along a boardwalk but there are a lot of stairs. Don't expect a waterfall when you arrive at the end. Despite going to the Hugh Dales in the wet season there was only a trickle of water. Nevertheless it was a great walk. Take good walking shoes because despite it not having rained for a couple of days, the ground was still slippery.

It was a bit of a hike, but its mostly on a boardwalk so pretty easy going. It gets a bit steep with a few steps at the end but the view from under the waterfall is amazing! You also see a good variety of crabs on the way

We completed the walk to the Anderson dale and it was memorable. Beautiful opening to the sea via a very rocky walk in the creek. Well worth the effort.
There wasn't much water at the first dale (Hughs) but lovely and cool with beautiful trees

This is not a water fall, just some water gently running over the rocks, but quite serene. Relatively easy walk from the car park to the main attraction, but there is quite a bit to see along the path. Plenty of crabs, birds and scenery.

great tour guide, Chris from Indian Ocean Adventure tours.

We didn't get to visit Andersen's Dale. The tracks were not readily visible and we tried to follow the stream but met with natural roadblocks as recent rains had caused alot of overgrowth. You will see plenty of crabs - mainly blue, also red and robber crabs as you walk through the Dales area.
Hugh's Dale is an easy boardwalk through the cool jungle, leading up towards the freshwater falls. You simply need to go under the falls for a refeshing shower after the hike up (...think Norsca ad; refreshing, cool, clean 💦) Also from here are the beautiful views of the jungle, all the way to the ocean. Take some time to sit and reflect here. Also be prepared with the mosquito repellent!!

Beginning at a well sign posted leeway you first walk on the grates until a half way point that directs you to either the Anderson Dale or on to the Hughes Dale waterfall. I recommend you do both but do the Anderson first as its a longer walk off the grates but more interesting and although a little rocky going down into the Dale to the ocean entrance its well worth it to see the home of the Blue Crabs and the small but impressive canyon..don't go out to the waves tho as its a little dangerous there stay on the pebble beach..on the way back there is a slight detour with pink ribbons on the tree branches to guide you to the infinity pools on the left side..Not to be missed these are literally amazing pools good for swimming but just watch the waves as the force is strong even here..
Back to the Hughes walk and you are on grates climbing up quite a few steps making you nice and hot so that the cooling rewarding shower at the end will refresh even the most sweaty souls..

Medium walk on Boardwalk and some small part of rougher terrain, many steps to take so not suitable for wheelchairs. The waterfall was pretty. Was able the stand underneath it. A range of crabs crossed my path..
