It’s was rainy but beautiful, the water fall is easy to access but 1 part is dangerous at the end, be careful but the vue is amazing

Easy track, moderate for kids Beautiful waterfall, both of it.

It’s was rainy but maybe better. This is very short hike and beautiful waterfall.

I cannot give this an accurate star rating because I’ve never actually been able to do the hike. Two years in a row I’ve attempted the hike in late July - early August and the trail has been closed both years. This year there is a sign up that it will reopen in October. I thought I would post this for any visitors who are attempting this in the winter months.

Nice easy walk to the waterfall.

Stunning walk through the bush to the beach then caves. Downhill on the way there and uphill on the way back. Caves are amazing and worth the walk to see them at low tide. Happy to pay the $5 each for road maintenance etc. Take cash.

Short 10 minute hike to a nice wide waterfall. It was unfortunately not flowing very strong but still a decent stop.

20 minute hike to a cool waterfall, worth the trip, sometimes can attract crowds

Nice waterfalls but not worth the drive to get there.

stunning

Great Walk though old bush down to the beach, then less than 10 mins to caves. Get there 1 hr before low tide. Doesn't take long to explore cave, but you must be out of the car park by 2 hrs after low tide. $5 for adults $1 kids. Check their website for low tide times.

Nice trail through great natural bush. Some stairs. Beautiful cascading waterfall.

Easy down and back. The highlight is the caves. Go in low tide, then explore the cave. There is a second cave, check it out, but you will get wet. Bring your camera.
