Only 5 min walk from the parking lot and you're in the middle of this fantastic scenery. We can recommend to go there in the afternoon where the sun is shining on it.

The power of this waterfall is incredible and a sight to see. Easy access off paved roads it is worth the drive in from Clearwater. A clean and shaded picnic area is also right at the falls and pitt toilets are available.

Went to these falls twice in one day. First was a hike on the Rim Trail which is opposite the actual viewing platform. After we finished the hike we drove to the traditional viewing area.

Great access to view the falls from a safe vantage point. Loads of spots to take film of the falls with an informative notice board if you didn't know about the sight. Also - a toilet with toilet roll!

I've had occassion to be in Clearwater in Summer and Winter. This place is beautiful by any standard. If you can go in Winter or early Spring you will see the astounding natural formation of a cone half way up this 460ft monster developed by the spray in frigid temperatures.
