Owner description: Reachable by hiking trail or four-wheel vehicle, Rarotonga's only fall is also known as Papua Waterfall, because water from the Papua stream spills down the cliff into a beautiful swimming hole.

Bring insect repellent. Fun to have a wade and watch the local kids jumping (scary heights) off the rock. We came past as part of our walk from the Needle. Visited January 2012.

Like a lot of people, we went at the wrong time of the year so there wasn't much water. Still quite a pretty area though. The Sheraton is worth stopping and having a look at, awesome and creepy at the same time. Wear some good shoes (not jandals) and talk a walk through some of the rooms.

The waterfall is about one kilometre from the main road up a sealed road. It's worth a look if you have some time to spare and, on Rarotonga, who hasn't? It's surrounded by tropical plants and a local pointed out that the blue flowers taste like mushrooms. So we tried them and agree.

Great fall - esp afer rain. Bring you togs and go for a swim - it looked like fun. Lots of mosquitoes.

Since there had been recent rain it was worth a visit. Refreshing water and a pretty scooter ride up to the falls.
