A good view and a surprise encounter with monkeys family

    A hidden gem for those who care to look
    There’s a fairly standard viewpoint with a wooden tower at the entrance which has some nice panoramic views of the peninsula. However, there is a moderately difficult path that leads to the top of the waterfall with some outstanding views without a wall blocking them for people who want to find it. The path is fairly well beaten and marked but there is a few steep slopes to climb down and a few streams to cross. Me and the Mrs did it in flip flops so it is doable but appropriate footwear would make it a lot easier, as would water! It’s about a 30 minute walk down to the view so quite tiring in hot weather - but the view is worth it!

    You can't see the waterfall
    It's quite a long walk to the lookout down and up stairs so be aware. The pathway os also uneven. The gorge opens up spectacularly with a stunning sea view. But no waterfall.
