Nice walk through the woods to reach the attraction. Nominal fee to get in then walks around the little staircases and into the tiny fairy pools etc. Well worth a visit would be fantastic for kids.

Wow what a breathtaking place and the cafe at the top is just amazing, the lady in the cafe bent over backwards to accommodate us and the peaceful atmosphere was fabulous. This is a must see for anyone visiting the area. Highly recommend.
