  • Great short loop trail (1.3km). Includes one additional overlook beyond the one located more or less at the car park. Even if you do not do the hike, the overlook of the Obi Obi Valley is great.  more »
  • Nice view from the top but when we visited waterfall dried up probably due to lack of rain. Very peaceful place but very limited parking.  more »

  • Great views... Especially at sunset! The kids (10 and 12) had no trouble with the trails. Very good experience for all of us, and we'll be repeating it again!
  • nice view and small trail easy for kids.
  • Great Views and walking trails. The Wampoo trail was short enough for those with smaller kids or there were longer trails for the more intrepid explorers.
  • Enjoy a day wandering around the forest and peak out of it to view the beautiful landscape from high above
  • Stunning views from the falls towards the Mary Valley. Fully wheelchair accessible
