Only 15 minutes from the falls and well worth the trip. This .25 mile walk has spectacular views of the rapids as the water hurtles from the falls into a narrow gorge.

We may have passed up the White Water Walk had we not had the 4-adventure passes. We enjoyed being close to the whirlpools and class V/VI rapids more than we'd expected. Definitely recommended.

Stay as long as you like, take your sandwich lunch. Sit and watch the river at its most violent. The height between the peaks and troughs must be 15 to 20 feet.
