Beautiful walk. Easy with the kids. Amazing to get so close to the falls, very exciting. Bit muddy, recommend old shoes or gumboots. But all the wet weather brings stunning green growth. Great boardwalks and easy to walk.

This is a really easy but pretty walk. Falls are at the end and are easy to get to. There are several places to stop to observe the stream and if you’re lucky, see a platypus

We loved this walk, lovely calm area and a relaxing area. Just mond the boardwalks as they can get very slippery.

The walk takes about an hour return and mostly on flat with exception of last few metres. Takes you along the babbling river - no platypus unfortunately - but very pleasant stretch of legs none the less. Situated close to main town

Well worth the short walk. Waterfall was spectacular after the recent rains. P.S. There is a Geocache there for those indulge.
