Just make sure you wear proper hiking shoes. Since the track gets too muddy during rains, it becomes difficult to maintain your grip.

Definitely a must. Was slippery due to rain but was heaps of fun and well worth the hike. Got to the top and the wind was up which made the Falls back splash on us and was a refreshing and cleansing experience.

Did the walk to the Lookout today (25/04/19). Took us 1:30hr return, and it wasn't easy. Up hill most of way, really rocky in parts and muddy in others, so make sure you wear proper shoes! Coming back down was quite slippery but we made it back in one piece. Glad to have done it, but don't believe people when they say you're only 50m from the Lookout.. they lie!

The trail is an uphill battle from the start, with a handful of bridges spanning over a riverbed of massive boulders. There is a 120+ step vertical staircase that upon climbing rewards you with wonderful views of the bottom of the falls. The climb to the top is extremely rocky and does away with steps entirely, exhausting but definitely worth the view from the top! You can walk right up to the edge of the falls and look over if you dare!

Absolutely stunning and challenging hike. You get the chance to have a break half way through with a gorgeous view of the waterfall. Once you get to the top you won't want to go back down!

Beautiful views from the top and just amazing scenery around. Steep climb in some areas which can be tricky. The route has some stairs and walkway. A must for anyone young and old.

First 40 mins is quite easy to walk. You will get to ths first viewpoint. This is half way to the top and the hardest part is to getting to the top. We made it in 35-40 mins and the view is amazing. Not really recommend to go to the top after a big rain, as it can get very slippery.

Steep climbs and tricky footing make this a fun and rewarding hike. Bring swimming trunks as there is a nice little pool at the top of the falls

Great track and well worth it! There are lots of roots and rocks on the track, so it is easy to miss-step and hurt yourself. The stairs are great, with handles on both sides. The path to the top lookout is very muddy.
