Rating: 4/5

This walker said: “Lovely place to visit. Went for a walk (chose the “easy” route because it had been raining - the steps looked a bit slippery!).

“The lady at the entrance said that it gave better views. We weren’t disappointed! Absolutely stunning waterfall, all the paths and bridges were well maintained.

“Definitely worth the visit and entrance fee. We were too late to go to the cafe but it looked lovely. Would recommend and likely to return!”
