This is one of the best falls we have visited and we have been to a lot. The access is great and the viewing platforms excellent.

A really gorgeous place to visit. Not too far to walk in and well worth making the effort to visit these falls.

Very mild and paved hike to the lookout. It is a very pretty sight and very neat history, especially with its significance to the local Aboriginal communities.

These falls are great to see. It is an easy short walk, I think no more than 15 minutes, to get to them. The forest walk in itself is great, lots of different trees to see and they grow in incredibles ways to make it...More

Wow these falls are spectacular and worth the drive. The walk down is very easy however it so so busy with people you will be lucky to find a rock to sit on and space to swim. Not my kind of relaxation! Such a shame...More

a bit of a drive to get there, a bit of a walk from the car to the falls, but it is really amazing what mother nature has done

We spent a good part of half a day. The walk itself is short but we spent a lot of time sliding down the rocks and swimming around. While crocs arent usually spotted in such fast moving water, keep your wits about you.
