  • Been to a fair few falls in a few countries, these are okay and quite pretty. There are a good number of steps leading down there, but they seem well maintained and there is a rail. This cumninates in...  more »
  • Good stopover spot en route to see the Twelve Apostles. You can cross the boulders in the creek and get to the opposite side to walk closer to the falls or away, to explore more. A wonderful adventure...  more »

  • One of a few waterfalls in great ocean road. We visited during light rain and the step was quite slippery but still ok. It was a nice view of the falls and surroundings. It was quite easy to go to the falls but need an effort to go back to the parking area. I think we need to step more than 400 stairs up.
  • Great place. Alot of stairs fun going down but need to take it easy coming back up.
  • This is a lovely location. Breath taking views and an adventurous trail along the river. If you are athletic I highly recommend trekking along the steam for dinner distance. If you are not there is an accessible stairway down to the waterfall and another longer staircase to the base of the waterfall. Great for a day trip or a stopover on the way along the great ocean rd.
  • Short walk from the carpark to wonderful views of the waterfall. Very steep. Best viewed after rainfall.
  • Was great. Not as big as some other waterfalls but the path was well maintained and tour busses cannot access so it was clean and not over crowded.
