4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

These lovely clean fresh water holes are a great place to swim. The water was clean and refreshing and very accessible.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

I'm glad I visited, though it was a disappointment. There'd been some damage and the place looked as if it was closed. A rope lazily endeavoured to stop one walking on a path, but was easy to walk around. There was not much water in the falls, but one could see that in good times this is a worthy place to visit. Needs a bit of work on it though to make it a decent attraction. Not sure that I would swim here - crocs could be around.

“Scorching hot January”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

A croc(salty) has been seen the week before we arrived and the falls were closed for swimming due to flooding. The extreme heat made it near impossible to stay outside the airconditioning of the car for long enough to eat lunch and trot down to the falls. we were going to do the walk, but it was so hot and the swimming holes were closed we decided against it. Still a lovely spot to see even flooded, but disappointed no swimming.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

It amazes me that this place relatively unknown is great for a swim under trees and has gorgeous green grass to lie in. We enjoyed several hours here before moving on to the next place.
