Were told this was an untapped gem and were not dissapointed. We drove to the top car park and tgen walked out to the waterfall. Easy short walk, but a little steep ans slippery in spots, worth the effort

Gorgeous falls. A lot bigger/higher than we expected. Easily accessible by both car and foot. Plenty of water even in late summer/early Autumn.

Great falls to see. Just off the hwy to town. Park either bottom picnic area or top car park. It's a cement path with some steep stairs. It's a rewarding falls with cascades. 20 minutes with photos
