Ok for a quick stop if driving past but wouldn't make a special trip. The viewing point is actually not the best point to view, you need to go above to the left but be careful, don't fall, no fence here. Plenty of litter though.

Dropped in to look at these falls which were flowing hard due to recent rain. Took a couple of pics but have seen similar in NZ so wasn't amazed by it. Definitely worth the fee though. Tours here would be better than dropping in yourself, as they also do coconut shows for those.

It is amazing but a bit of a dive out of Apia. Worth it though! It looks absolutely spectacular. Great for taking photos

If you are driving across the Island make sure you stop here. Lush green forest and long, long beautiful waterfall. Just don't wander away from the viewing point and fall in. You could stop off here and eat a packed lunch, as its in the middle of a longish trip.

Beautiful view across the gorge from the viewing point at the carpark. A bit of trash in the carpark made it a little untidy.

The waterfalls are hard to find coming from Apia if it is raining, as the sign only faces one way. The views are gorgeous.
