Difficult bumpy dirt road poorly signposted to a small but pleasant falls. May have to walk the last 200m due to road conditions. some rubbish strewn about. Not really a place to visit unless you have time.

Didn't really choose a good day as the weather was awful but all the bushes and trees could do with a trim as this massively spoils the view. Nice drive to get there and we saw monkeys unexpectedly but wouldn't rush to go back

Driving to the falls is somewhat suspect. you have to drive up a street which is in a poor condition followed by a cane field. Then you will appear on a land with a graveyard on your left and you will see what looks like...More
