  • It's only around a fresh water river, but with very clear water, as far as I can remember in drinking water quality. Our bus driver had luckily floats, so we could Bob along the river. Toilets and changing rooms available. Also there is an airline that offers scenic flights. Price is $80 pP for about 5-10 minutes. It is therefore not a reasonable price, as pointed out by the provider, but default rates.

  • Very pretty place, get there before or after the tourist buses .Feed the March flies to the fish,they love them 😀
  • Such a beautiful place, even when cloudy. Walk through the creek or use a float ring and watch the nature around you😉
  • Great place however go late in the afternoon when the tourist groups are gone. March flies can be bad.
  • A must visit. Always crowded though so plan when to go if you don't like crowds.
  • Float down a river with no rocks at the bottom. Unbelievable.
