This is a quiet, peaceful area to get away from the hustle and bustle. There is a cafe and gift shop, large grassy area, tables and, on Thursday afternoon, a local farmer's market. For an admission, you can go into the historical heritage exhibition area.

You must buy tickets. Yes, that should be ample time. You can swim in the lagoon under the falls, too, though life jackets are required (and provided).
