You may want to try this again and again once you've experienced the thrill of skimming the 16-foot waterfall down this natural rock slide.

Head down the stairs, but make sure you wear something on your feet. Once you hit the bottom of the stairs the are pebbles everywhere. The sliding rocks themselves are a bit of fun. The water is cool and refreshing, and also a great place...More

The walk down was horrible as the hand rails were a bit wobbly and the steps were uneven. Walk back up is just hands down the walk of death lol, but the view and sliding rocks itself is great!

We visited the sliding rocks at rhe beginning of the wet season so there was not much water - certainly not enough to do much sliding. There is an awfully steep climb down to the pools, and obviously a correspondingly awfully steep climb back up...More

We paid the woman who knew quite well that we would not be able to swim. There was no water on the rocks. The walk up and down is not for the faint hearted. The woman who took the money almost laughed when we came...More

Awesome place but the water level was low and could be dangerous, best to wait until there is some rain to top up the pools. Staircase down to the rocks was steep and long. Saw a bloke carrying a child...he didn’t seem to be enjoying...More

A lovely spot to relax and swim. No sliding in the drier season (about May- Nov), which we were told after we'd paid. Could imagine that it would be good fun when lots of water is flowing over the rocks.

Depends how old they are. There are about 80-100 steps, and quite steep.
