I've been to Cascades a few times and i love that every time i return the whole area is improved. The traditional owners put the profits back into improving the attraction which is always good. When i first visited the waterfalls years ago there was an old guy sitting with a bucket at the entrance. Now it has a restaurant,... More

Just beautiful, it's an average 30min walk there and back but so worth it when you arrive. To relax, cool down and swim in the beautiful refreshing pools was wonderful. Be aware once you leave the entrance there are no facilities until you return, so take adequate food and especially water. Cost about $50 AUD for entry.

Make time in your schedule to visit the Mele Cascades. It's a relatively easy walk up the waterfall but is very wet so be sure to have your togs and some decent shoes (that can get wet).

This is a must do, it was spectacular. Make sure you take river shoes and your bathers. Such a beautiful spot.

Good to walk to, not too far from Hideaway Island. Bit of a walk up to the waterfalls, but very worth it. Take your togs and expect to get wet! Not for those with limited ability.

Fantastic value and awesome experience. Extremely proficient and friendly staff. The bonus Jump off of the rock into the ice-cold pool is the icing on the cake.

Enjoyed going here with out kids - a little difficult in areas to climb up but not too bad overall and the waterfall at the top made it really worth while. This is a spectacular sight and a good family experience.
