Falls ok not best I have seen. Pity can't access from carpark directly opposite would be great photo spot BUT private camping carpark. Easy very short walk from car park.

The falls are a short drive off the main highway. There is a parking area very close to the falls and many areas to capture views of the falls. A very clean area.

We stopped here on our way back from our Paihia stay and glad we did. Wish we had more time so we could have done some of the walks. Go over with some time and comfortable walking shoes.

Nice falls but not amazing. Worth stopping at if driving past for a quick visit but wouldn't go specifically just to see them.
