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.
