Took our Youth Adventure group here. It was the first walk they lead without assistance. A bit too easy for them I think. Beautiful waterfalls and we had fun trying to run to the top of the boulder at the second(or third) last water fall.

Lovely walk, took me an hour, dawdling and looking at all the falls .

Come here if you want to see four waterfalls in an hours walk. The falls are even more spectacular after the rain. This walk is less known by tourists so the track isn't as crowded.
