Fun. One of the few things open on a Sunday. A steep and long flight of steps down (and up). The water was a little low when we were there but it was still fun. The top is beautifully st out and would be great for a picnic.

Due to the lack of rain we couldn't slide down the rocks but still had a lovely afternoon bathing in the pools. The owners were good to tell us about the lack of water before we paid.

We had loads of fun here at the papseea sliding rocks! It is helpful if you are there with some locals as they know which rocks to slide down and the safest route. Great activity on a warm sunny day!

Came on my own on a day with some water, and I had a blast with the place all to myself. Was unsure of water depth with a sore rear on the top pool, but a good intro to the pools. The 3rd pool down was the best with good depth and a scary fun of losing control going down!... More

We took our little kids to play in the pools, knowing that the water is pretty low right now. We signed in about 2 in the afternoon on Saturday, and started up the hill around 4pm. The posted closing time is 5:30pm. At the top we were quite alarmed to see we had been locked in! My husband immediately climbed... More

We went in the beginning of October and there wasn't any water on the sliding rock so can't really say too much. We had a nice dip on a hot day and enjoyed every minute of it.

We knew there hadn't been much rain but did not realise how dry the not-so-sliding rocks would be. The lady took our money saying there hadn't been much rain but that we could still enjoy the pools of water. Once we reached the bottom of the stairs we realised there was actually no water running down the rocks and the... More

The water levels were low when we saw the sliding rocks but I'm sure would be great when the levels were higher. A bit too dry and bumpy with the limited water. Staff and family running the place were lovely

Cheap to enter and a local family run the attraction. Very steep walk down and up on concrete steps with some rails for support - definitely not recommended for older people or small children. At the bottom are a few pools (one with sliding rocks only) but the day we were there the water was not flowing (more of a... More
