More of a muddy trickle than falls. Not worth getting out of the car for - whoever built the track down to these "falls" was pulling our legs

The falls are in a lovely forest- with amazingly huge trees- huge trunks and so tall!! The waterfall is small and has two viewing points- a high one and a lower one which is steeper and a longer walk. It was a short break whilst...More

There are 2 levels to be explored- upper and lower. It is a steep walk to the falls and back to the Carpark. It is not a big waterfall, but worth spending some time enjoying it. Small Carpark, you can however park on the side...More

After an easy 400 meter stroll downhill through forest there are two sections of small falls with nice viewing platforms. Pleasant but by comparison to other Victoria falls, the falls are not exactly breathtaking.

The falls are at two levels, neither very high. The approach to the lower falls in particular is steep and irregular. However, the surrounding forest is beautiful and well worth walking through.

On the way to Olinda falls you'll pass wild park without special sidewalks. Wear good and convenient shoes to be able to pass dirt road up and down.

A nice walk in the forest, and a little adventure for the older kids. We walked to the lower falls, which is a pretty steep walk back up, tiring work-out on a hot day. Not a breathtaking falls but got a chance to feel the...More
