  • Such a good walk and spectacular views and atmosphere. An absolute must but do avoid the extortionate car park charges if you can by parking away and walking a little further.

  • Best to have good tracking shoes and waterproof gear. It can get very cold and very windy. Weather may turn quickly with strong winds and rain.

  • Great place for a day out, the walking paths were you can better see the waterfalls are close but still the waterfalls is a sight to see. The trail can be muddy and slippery so appropriate footwear is a must although the trail itself is easy to walk with. I would suggest going there as early as possible since it gets really busy during the midday if you want a private photo opportunity with nature then go early😀. Overall its great place to have a walk with the park being free of charge except for the parking though😀y
  • Highly recommended. Great walk up to and around the falls. Great views of the water with some fantastic photo opportunities. Plenty of points to dip your feet in and just sit and watch the water pass by. You could easily get around the quick route in 45-60 mins. Or you can take your time and do it in around 2 hours.
