Gorgeous natural pools and theres an spot where you can jump in the water from more than 15m high! We saw eels, yabis and lots of fish. Really cold water but breathing there help your lungs.

I am quite unfit, so it is a bit of a tough walk for me - some of the hills are pretty steep (to me), but the views along the way are quite beautiful, and the path is wide and well-kept. A good walk in...More

Great place. A good hard uphill walk made worthwhile by the waterfalls and pools at the top! The water is crystal clear, but freezing cold in late May, nut definitely recommend a swim.

The walk up to the gorge is pleasant and when you get there it is a good place to relax, have the picnic and cool down

The path is full of hills and when you get to the gorge there isn't a very smooth path for a pram, pouch would be best
