Shine Falls Reviews
Yes it is a long drive and the walk through the cow piles is like an obstacle course but it is all worth it when you get to the falls. Spectacular. We did not see a single person until we got back and... more »
Nice easy walk with a great view at the end of it. In the summer great for swimming to cool off. Great day trip. more »
Spectacular falls, beautiful walk. Perfect nature activity for moderately fit and above, recommended for kids about 6 and up. One of the most beautiful falls I’ve ever seen. We had a good splash at the base. The bottom is sandy and comfortable once you get past a few meters of rocks.
It'll take about an hours walk, but once you get to the end of the track, you'll be rewarded with an amazing waterfall that definitely took me by surprise by just how big it is. A great day trip for anyone. Highly recommended!
