Waterfall was pretty but couldn't see the whole fall due to overgrowth of vegetation. Would benefit from a view platform being built.

It is quick and easy to stop here on the Cross Island Road. Might as well do it! Would be nice to have a trash can as there is litter everywhere.

Widely advertised, the falls offer a spectacular vertical drop of 300m approx. However, there are very limited viewing spots and these are some distance away. If you are touring, or as part of a taxi ride then the falls are worth a visit - with...More
