Very short walk for amazing views of the huge amount of water that comes over the falls. Watch kayakers and the speedboat come up the other side. Grabbed an ice cream from the shop in the car park. It is a must stop.

Remember to take a bottle to pee in. I forgot mine so I paid 50 cents to use the toilets provided only to find that someone had peed all over the seat and the floor. They were disgusting! I complained but didn’t get a refund....More
