The picture I got here was nice and there were a couple of other waterfalls in the park that were quite photogenic.

This place is like a dream. There are 3 awesome waterfalls on the trail and the hiking is a nice adventure. You start out on a simple trail then start crossing streams and eventually end up climbing rocks to get to the end. I've been here on multiple Sundays and was the only one on the trail. Maybe its different now but I've never had a problem with crowds at this place, just mud after it rains.

As I mentioned above, I don't really recommend visiting this waterfall even though it's quite beautiful. It has turned into Disneyland with lines, fences, and food stands everywhere. I hate this place now. But I'll leave a Google Map link anyway.

This place is a great example of what happens to a beautiful place when it becomes popular. Sure, in the pics here it looks nice, but in person it's full of fences and 60+ year olds stumbling into each other phone in hand.

This is a very popular weekend getaway. It's an aboriginal village with a small market, hot springs, and of course this waterfall.
