I live in North Queensland (where waterfalls abound) and there is nothing I love more than waterfall chasing but this one you cannot swim at unfortunately. It was very difficult indeed to heed the 'do not swim' signs when confronted with such a nice waterfall...More

Had a very good midday meal during the week. Wine also available but driving therefore none. Friendly service. Great job of rebuilding.

An incredible hike with views that take your breath away! Went midweek outside of school holidays and had the place to ourselves! Had a chill in the water, was relaxing, then enjoyed a picnic! Recommend 💯

Great place to visit any time of the year and enjoying a nice walk. Great for picnic and plenty of rooms for kids to run around. Looks amazing in autumn

Not far from the city of Adelaide sits this little gem. It seems that people know about it as parking was a little challenge. Great walks and views.

There's a picturesque waterfall at the bottom, there are a couple of nice scenic spots with a view of the city on the way up, a couple of 'pretty glades' as well but the best place would be at the lookout at the top... More
