  • Even if it is only around a waterfall, the visit to each case has paid off. There is a viewing platform from which you can make beautiful images of himself and the waterfall and the rest of the rain forest is beautiful. The location is a little bumpy and grade on the way back, we were afraid that our car might not back up comes the steep mountains.

  • A nice drive up! And a nice walk to see the falls! We went in the middle of winter and it's still fun! Just be careful if it has been raining.
  • Very close to nature. Tall trees, fresh breeze. Beautiful ppace to go.
  • Great place to walk. Lovely view. Trees provide lots of shade, but be prepared for stairs.
  • Such an amazing place. The walk from the car park takes about 30-40 minutes return. The way up can be a bit difficult but worth it. The waterfall is very beautiful and enjoyable to watch.
  • Splendid memorable Otway Rainforest waterfall. Easy to get to and plenty to look at. Even though path down is very steep, it's a well kept paved path with railings, a luscious walk and beautiful views. There is even fish to see in the pool downstream from the fall.
