Was very impressed with the attraction. Excellent parking and the walkways were easily manageable. Well worth a visit.

The falls are definitely worth a visit. With the top of the falls only been a few steps from the car park... any fitness level, age can view. And if you feel inclined, it is a lovely walk down to the bottom and back up...More

We had some spare time so visited the water fall. Surrounding settings and walking paths are good. Water fall is beautiful. Good spots for picnics and family time. Not as high as lot of waterfalls but beautiful.

Not the largest fall, but very serene. nice walk to the base and back Suitable for children also if you keep an eye on them when they walk over the bridge at the top.

This is a great place to visit while in Whangarie, or even passing through. The falls are beautiful, but you need to do the walk to the base for the best view.

Nice short walk to see some great falls. Going down the bottom requires reasonable mobility but these can be seen from the top where there is easy access. Also a great picnic area and toilet stop.
