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.

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.

We arrived nice and early and made our way down to the rocks. As we walked we noticed a sign saying the water is often low at this time of year - I didn’t realise how low it actually got. As we reached the water,...More

The water wasn't flowing when we were there but we climbed down & had a swim. Beautiful spot, would highly recommend if the water is really flowing

Okay. I've been to this amazing place too many times to count. Growing up on the islands, it was the place to bring my overseas cousins, before we moved to Australia that is. Back then the waterfall was so strong and flowed beautifully. The way...More

This was ok but a little disappointing, the lady was quick to take our Tala but wasn't until we read the signs saying at this time of year there is not a lot of water so no sliding rocks just pools of water

Very beautiful and a fairly exciting slide! Best to go when the water is high to avoid injuries. Steep climb down to the river but refreshing to see a natural attraction that isn’t over commercialised with restrictions. Common sense needs to be engaged.

We picked wrong time of year to do this. River levels very low so couldn't slide but did take dip in the pool at base of the glide. Vey refreshing! Steep steps for anyone with mobility challenges. We took a picnic and chilled in one...More

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

It's not a stupid question but is difficult to answer. You would have to keep a close eye on your child ( I'm not implying you don't) but it is a bit dodgy if the child wandered off to explore. There is a pool to the right... More
