“Amazing Waterfall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

I still can't believe how cool this waterfall is! It's multi-tiered and very tall and a cool place to go for a swim or have a picnic.

Beautiful nature at its best, it has a few slippery and a little dangerous parts but you just watch your step. Make sure you dont leave any valuables in the car they might get broken into . beautiful place

“A truly magical place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

First time back here in about 40 years and its just as l remember it and yes do the loop track and depending on your speed about 15 to 25 minutes walk down.There are some great swimming areas and the falls are just beautiful and with all the bush around and the birds twittering away it is a magical place and yes we will be back next year.
Don't forget the camera.

Gorgeous walk and well worth it. You can do a loop track or chose a shorter walk but we definitely recommend the loop track.

“Kaiate Falls.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

A small hike to the falls but manageable for a family. There is a shallow rocky stream with small pools and a large pool just under the falls for good swimmers. Great for teenagers who love to jump off rocks into water. Take a picnic.
