(What do these stats mean?)

A little smaller than it's more famous neighbours (Webster's and Tews Falls), this is no less interesting, and just as pretty. There won't be the crowds that gather at the others, but at the same time, this one isn't as well set up for visiting. It's a long walk to the base of the gorge... or... if you're careful and don't mind getting dirty, there may still be a muddy access point along the right gorge wall where the rock face is only a meter or two high. From this point you can lower yourself on to a big boulder pile, and then pick your way to the base of the falls. Be careful around the crest of the falls, as there are no safety fences.   (updated 41810).
