Loved it, very peaceful and with breath taking waterfalls, lovely walk through the rain forest to see the waterfalls, lots of wildlife around and wish I lived here as I would be coming here most weekend to chill out

Crystal Cascades is beautiful! But be prepared for a long walk to get there from the car park! Plenty of swimming holes to swim in and beautiful sights to see

Take your swimming gear... however be mindful of the rocks on the bottom can sometimes hurt if you are not aware of them. However brilliant place to swim :) Take a waterproof phone case so you can take photo while you are in the water
