We walked or should I say climbed from the car park to the falls. It is quite a climb but worth it. The path can be quite slippy if wet so need to wear suitable footwear.

The wire bridge was the highlight of the trip! Definitely wear shoes that are waterproof in the springtime. It was wet almost everywhere!

Once over the cable bridge, it is very wet and marshy. Wellies a must. Some people were approaching the falls from the left side - Im sure they walked down the river to a shallower point.
