  • Quite a trek up to what at April times were quite disappointing waterfalls, although did not go to the very top. Great views, parking as usual expensive. Paths were closed due to tree falls.

  • Such a beautiful place to visit. Quite busy and we were advised to go later in the afternoon but decided it didn't fit it with our plans. It would be nice to visit at a quiet time but it didn't affect our enjoyment of it at all. Kids loved to scramble over the river and we got some amazing photos 😍
  • Was visiting relatives so brought grandsons for the walk. Beautiful scenery & spectacular waterfalls. All enjoyed the walk in the fresh air. Took plenty of shots of some of the falls. If only it was warmer (and allowed!) a dip in some of the pools might have been refreshing: as it is, made do with skimming stones along with grandsons.
