  • We were more interested in the local flora of the area> It was a pleasant rainforest environment, but also a popular swimming hole with mostly backpackers, but also locals. Very limited parking, but w...  more »
  • Good parking. Easy to locate. Short easy walk to top of falls. For best view need to take the walking trail to the bottom of the falls. This walk is very steep and slipperry. Great swimming hole. Can ...  more »
  • The benefit is that it's easier to locate than other waterfalls/swimming holes. Although, its not as amazing as other places around the area, but still enjoyable. Nice place for a dip, just be careful...  more »

  • An impressive waterfall, but hard to get to. The path can be muddy, and the final approach (past the viewing platform, down to the river and waterfall proper) is steep and slippery. The river is lined with slippery rocks. The waterfall itself is lovely, it is great to be able to climb behind the falls. Don't know about swimming.
  • The walk down is a small bit challenging so I would recommend appropriate footwear. We were the only group there and it was a super chilled place. There are no toilets so.....bring some tissues!!! Definitely recommend it
  • Amazing work from mother nature, short but steep and rocky walk to bottom well worth the effort.
  • Great place on a Summers Day. Recommend get changed prior to arriving, take shoes suitable for water (There are some seriously rough rocks under the water, but water shoes make it easy as), and take EVERYONE you can! its amazing. about 400-500 walk to the water down hill, only suitable for people of 80-90% agility, steep in places.
  • Beautiful waterfall and good swimming spot!
