If your looking to kill some time in the area this is worth a look. Easy path down to the top viewing platform. Make sure you also head to the next platform to see a different perspective.

A bit of a long drive getting to this but parking is easy and the path is easier. Great viewing platforms and a fantastic waterfall to just sit back and enjoy

A quite impressive waterfall, dropping about 50 metres down into a pool.Depending on the time of the day an opportunity for great photos with a rainbow along the walkway down to the pool.

As others have said, it is a short track, but it depends on your fitness level as to how long it would take. You could easily do it within 30 minutes, but could allow longer for just enjoying. Enjoy!
