Steep walk of 3 klms from lookout to base of waterfall. Well worth the effort to see the waterfall from the base. Good, well defined track. Take drinks. Did this in June & still needed fluids making our way back up. So be careful of the heat & humidity. From the lookout the track drops from 600 metre to 336 metres at the base over 1.55 klms. Even in dry weather the last few hundred metres is slippery due to the mist spray from the falls.

This is quite a steep and narrow track and can get quite slippery at some places, especially after a bit of rain. However it is very easy to follow and down the bottom you'll start hearing the water coming down of the waterfall. It is very impressive to watch the force of water plunging down. The mist that comes of the bottom of the falls makes it even more special on sunny days, because there will be a beautiful rainbow visible. Best time to be there for this is mid morning. So worth it! The climb going back to the car park, can be a bit difficult for some in the humidity of this rain forest.
