We ambled alongside the river, using all the viewpoints to see the various Falls to best advantage. The path is good and well maintained. We benefitted from recent heavy rains making the Falls quite spectacular.

You can walk along a board walk for about 10-15 mins or so which is a beautiful walk toward the falls. To view the falls though you would need a buggy with large wheels rather than standard push chair to cover the last 5... More
