  • This was a nice little stop on our road trip. We just decided to stop on a whim because we saw other cars parked. I’m glad we stopped because the little walk to the falls was really beautiful, the trees looked really nice and there was a lot of moss making the whole place very green.
  • Cannot fault this place. A 3 minute walk from the roadside. After you wind your way through the trees and bushes! You find the stunning waterfall tumbling into crystal clear blue waters! You can stay on the observation deck or go down and rock-hop into the river itself. Absolutely worth seeing in my opinion.
