easy drive especially scenic if you go the back road through the golf course . Only a few minutes out of town so worth a look for sure.

Pretty as a waterfall, lots of algae. Don't swim at the top of the falls. Though it's fine to go down where there's kayaks at the bottom of the falls

Stopped by on the back road to the Treaty Grounds. Lovely spot for photo taking. Very peaceful and has some great scenery.

We came across the falls by chance & they were worth visiting. Locals swimming, kayaking & a camping ground on the edge of the falls. Alovely spot.

If you have some spare time go have a look it's not really much in my book but every one to their own their is also a walk track that is better than the falls

This is a pretty horseshoe shaped falls, not huge but very attractive with lots of rocks you can walk around. Would be good for a picnic spot.

Not far out of town so worth a bit of time for a quick look, but not that impressive really and the 'walk' from the car park isn't more than two minutes so its all a bit overstated I think
