It's a lovely drive out here - quite and rural, and the falls are lovely. Not spectacular like others throughout the country, but peaceful and idyllic. Worth a visit.

Worth seeing after heavy rain as they fill up with water, but during a drought perhaps not worth the effort to get to them

Definitely worth stopping at. Can even walk behind the waterfall & enjoy the rush as the water flows over the top.
