So glad we stopped here. With the recent rain, the falls were flowing nicely. It was great to get up close to them and we got lots of great pictures. There are 3 main viewing spots, from top to bottom. The top falls is a bit disappointing, because it is hard to get a good viewing angle. The middle falls is fantastic, with lots of room and the ability to get as close as you like. The bottom falls is also really good, but not as large and spectacular as the middle. The path was well maintained, but I would imagine it could be a bit steep for older walkers. At first I baulked at the $8 flat parking tickets, but after seeing the falls, I was happy to contribute to the upkeep of this wonderful place.

Easy parking and tables and chairs close by. The walk to the waterfall is worth it and if it is hot day you can go for a dip.

The falls are gorgeous and great for exploring the creek bed. Lovely forest around and the dappled sunlight allows anyone to explore without too many worries about sunburn etc. The place was pretty clean and allows views from three different platforms which means people of varying physical capabilities can enjoy the place.

Was told about it by friends so went with some anticipation. May have perhaps not found the location correctly or it was not sign posted very well but but found the experience underwhelming. It had been very dry for many months and the waterfall was naturally non existent. This must be the main feature as all other surroundings seemed ordinary. Vowed to go again soon to ensure we were at correct spot.

Plenty of tables and seats to enjoy a picnic ... and of course the waterfalls. Easy access and plenty of parking.
