Toilet and picnic areas and the place gets very busy on the weekends in summer, when everyone calls in for a swim to cool down and use the rope swings. Beware of broken glass at the bottom of the pools.

Needed to cool off after climbing at the Glass House Mountains. Great rock pools with a couple of swings, didn't want to leave!

My friends and i go to these falls a lot and we have since we were in school, it is very beautiful and the walk there is simply a few steps. Anyone could get to the falls.

Very easy walk, would be a nice area for a picnic.

Great for the kids to have a swim and muck about in the rock pools.

Close to Obi Obi river, easy walk with rock pool. Had to check it out when doing a couple walks in Hinterland. Good for splash in summer I think.

A short stroll along a very pretty creek. Swimming hole at the falls and a few picnic tables along the way.

it's an amazing place great for a fresh water swim and a swing off the Tarzan rope but watch your children all times waterfall can flow heavy ... but it's a must put on your tick list to visit

Nice and pleasant. Good for a dip in summer.

This was a nice easy walk along the creek. I would imagine it gets really busy in summer. Such a great place for a swim.
