Great place to stop for a moment. We loved the waterfalls and you can really see the fault line from the 1929 earthquake. Well worth a stop if you're passing through. Only a 10 min walk and plenty of parking and a toilet stop available too. This seems to also be a freedom campsite for self contained vehicles.

The falls are impressive but would be more with rain. It is only 10 minutes from the carpark. Lots of sandflies.

Not mentioned in any of our guide books, but well worth a stop to view this wide falls. Decent sized carpark.
