Amazing fresh waterfall with lime stone climb. Must see for a swim! Take water with you and towels. Have a swim in pond with fishes and get a cold beer on your return. Get under the big waterfall and small ponds. Don't be afraid to climb limestone it's not slippery

It is expensive to get in BUT really well worth it. You have to walk all the way to the top and don't forget the Hideaway lookout. Swimming in the pool and under the waterfalls. Take reef shoes because your shoes will get wet. Spend a few hours there - don't rush it.

One of the best days on the trip. Water was refreshing and the climb though steep in places was very easy. Best not to do the trip when a liner is in. I would do it again in a heart beat.

The waterfall is an excellent attraction and well worth a visit. Takes some 20 minutes walk to reach the foot of the fall, some of which is wading shallow water so jandalls or reef shoes are the best footwear. Make sure you take a camera.

Brilliant place to visit. Would recommend wearing beach shoes as you need to walk through water and rocks to climb up to waterfall. In the rock pool on left as you get to the end of your climb there is a small cave as you walk through the water. Worth the climb and Monet $25 aud to enter and bus... More

we did this day trip to mele cascades from our hotel. caught local bus. The cascades were truly beautiful. We are both in our 70s and my husband was keen to get to the pool at the bottom of the falls which was quite a difficult walk. however one of the staff at the beginning of the hard part took... More

Was you walk up you finnaly see... More
