You may want to try this again and again once you've experienced the thrill of skimming the 16-foot waterfall down this natural rock slide.

Could still use the mid and lower slide, and splash about in the pools. The walk back up the stairs is literally not for the weak of heart.

We went with 10 people aged between 5-64. We found sliding down the rocks a bit dangerous. Ended up with a few bruised tail bones and scratches on backs. Not one of our favourite stops.

Some of the other reviewers have mentioned this site is best during the wet season or just after rain. It is lovely to look at, and the walk down and up is a good cardio workout, but for me, today, it was a little too...More

Was really disappointed. A large number of stairs, which is fine but found the finish point was not worth the energy. Very under whelming.

Unfortunately we couldn’t do anything as the water wasn’t deep enough. So a no go in the dry season.

It is advisable to visit this place when there is sufficient rain fall. One also need to be physically fit to climb close to two hundred steps.

Quite a strenuous climb down slippery and poorly maintained steps with broken and missing banisters to be faced with 30 people doing “cleaning work”. Did not go down treacherous looking sliding rocks though. $5 per person.

Depends how old they are. There are about 80-100 steps, and quite steep.

It's not a stupid question but is difficult to answer. You would have to keep a close eye on your child ( I'm not implying you don't) but it is a bit dodgy if the child wandered off to explore. There is a pool to the right... More
