Beautiful walkway with a constant view of the clear blue-green waters. There are quite a few places to sit and rest along the way. There is a toilet about halfway down the walk as well. The view is better if you follow the path past the wooden walkway for a bit. If you go on a hot sunny day like we did, I'd highly recommend you take an umbrella.

Was a lovely walk and I also noticed a local of the area who seemed to be cleaning up and stopping uneducated types that trampled the newly planted scrub. Would recommend people to visit and to please remain on the paths

A beautiful walkway needs only three hours return. The walk covers farm with animals, waters, springs.
The public toilet can be upgraded.
The sign at the entrance 'HIGH THEFT AREA' is scary. Be aware.

We heard about this spot and decided to stop by and have a look. What a delight! Well worth the trip. Easy walk, well maintained track and great views/location. There are two ways to get to the main attraction. The short walk and the long walk, so take your pick. One starts at one end with a big car park and one starts at the other end with a smaller car park. Better on a day when the suns out but I’m sure it’ll still be beautiful even when it’s cloudy.
