The view from the falls lookout on the road you ostensibly take to the "1000 foot falls" is OK, but really nothing to write home about. However, we found the remnants of an abandoned half a kilometer from the "tourist center" and went through the jungle and hiked along the roaring river to the actual falls edge. In dry season, you can walk right up to the precipice. The views are breathtaking and you can swim in the pools above the drop.
There is a road that goes to the other side of the falls if you take a much longer route on Cooma Cairn; it's visible on google maps satellite view and there was an obvious trailhead down to the actual falls. However, as we didn't try this route, I have no idea if this road is private. Many of the larger roads you can see either in gmaps or from satellite are actually private and are fenced off.
