Stopped off to have a break. Lovely spot, with benches and tables. A short walk (with steps) to see a lovely waterfall from a wooden footbridge. Didn’t venture further but the path leads on.

A favorite swimming hole for young and old alike. Deep pools offer a nice spot to swim or if you’re brave enough jump. If you want a picture of the falls go at an off peak time because people go here to swim/jump.

A must for all lovers of waterfalls. Not that big but definitely worth a stop. Families were in the cool water pool and having a great experience. Easy access.

Located a short walk from the parking, this is a beautiful series of waterfalls and pools. It was full of folks swimming on a hot summer's day.
