  • Water levels were low, with it being January, so no rapids in evidence, but what a lovely place to visit. We took the 3km Goat Walk circular route - it was undulating and steep in places but nothing too difficult for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness. There's plenty of car parking space and a clean toilet block. If you're looking for nothing more strenuous than a little stroll, then an amble along the river bank won't disappoint.
  • Really beautiful scenic place, I would say it’s much better end of winter/spring when the water levels are up. But even now mid December it’s still a great visit with much to photograph and waters to relax by. It’s fee to get in and dogs have a great time there. Seems some good camping ground also.
