You can get here by boat faster then walking. We did this as part of our island tour as the visibility on water was poor. Cool and refreshing. Really quiet and off the beaten track. First time ever to have a waterfall to ourselves.

Nothing extraordinary when one has visited many other nicer waterfalls .. but nice to have a cool bath after a walk. We walked for about 75min from Port Barton beach. Donation box and nice young people at registration center, 15min walk away from the fall.

Nice waterfalls not far from Port Barton. It took us less than hour to hike there (we used the a comment below as a help) and it´s a nice walk. You can pay a voluntary entrance fee which should be used for the environmental purposes....More
