We decided to fuel up in the cafe before our waterside walk. It was immaculate and the staff were so friendly and the food freshly made to order. The waterfall walk was 3 km with some steepish inclines but we’ll worth it. Car park reasonable...More

We visited in August, and did wonder how spectacular the waterfall would be after the dry summer, but we were not disappointed. The circular walk was pleasant and gave us quite a few photo opportunities. The boardwalks and steps make the walk easier than it...More

Both walks do have hills. The waterfall trail is beautiful, it's 1.5miles or so but does have a few steep hills.

I've seen several on the trail, it's all outdoors except for an extremely small structure at the falls.
