A must see! You have to pay an entrance fee per person, but I think that the money is well put into use because the pathways are well kept and accessible even for wheel chairs and strollers. There is a beautiful bridge, a great view for the water cut canyons.

A “ photo Frame” labelled Bourkes Luck is also available for you to take pictures.

One can get your feet wet in the babbling brooks and little puddles before the water fall. The water is freezing though but there is even little fish. Just be careful because the rocks are rather slippery.

One disappointment is that this place does not have a half decent eatery. There is a small time café with atrocious food. For such a well know tourist destination, I thought there would be better refreshment places.

There are little souvenir shops but ofcourse, ridiculously overpriced. don’t dismay though, taking a picture with the gigantic photo frame makes for a pretty cool souvenir.

breath taking views, great place to be and a good exercise. I would like to re-visit the place again. The staff are also friendly.

The price to enter is a bit high but we decided to enter anyway. The children loved it, especially drinking water from the river. The rock formations are amazing to see. The pathways are kept in good condition and there is even wheelchair access. We spent a lot of time here jumping over the rocks by the river and exploring. One of the must see places if you are in the area.
We also went to the restaurant for a snack and the portions were big enough to share.

I've been going here since I was a child (don't ask how many decades :) ), and what a pleasure that there are comfortable pathways and bridges unlike the early years. Since my previous visit from about 13 years ago it is at least very clean.

This was the first visit for the rest of my party and they were awestruck. This is really a wonder work of nature. Wear comfortable shoes, a hat that won't blow off and don't forget your camera. One tourist had a drone and I would have loved to have seen his photographic footage.
