  • We love walking and assumed due to location dogs would be on leads. Not so. It’s disgusting how people think shouting he’s friendly thinks that means everyone wants their filthy dog jumping on them...

  • Really beautiful place. The waterfalls can be viewed from three main points. Top, middle and bottom and it’s all really straight forward, clearly signed most of the time. But to tell it simply; I parked at the top car park, walked down the road till we came across the bridge. You’ll see a gate to your left once on the other side. If you walk up through there you’ll see the top of the falls. Walk back once done and continue straight (which is right at the bridge from before) and go up the slight incline till you get to the other car park. Keep walking cross the road and simply stay on the path till you see signs to the different viewing platforms. To do the whole thing can be done rather quickly. It’s not a long walk. However best to take your time and enjoy. I believe unless you’re stopping to have a picnic (I did see some benches at the top spot) 2 hours parking will be ample time. There are toilets and a few coffee shops dotted around. Would make a lovely day out.
  • The falls were as high as I've ever seen them, because the river was so full after a lot of rain. It was a great mass of white water there was little of the rock structure showing, just covered in fast moving water. Very impressive! I`m 74 now and I've seen it many times over my life, but last week was the best I've seen it, well worth a visit.
