This Walk, Snap, Explore activity involves spectacular rainforest, waterfall and canyon views. Amble along the elevated walkway and paved track, taking in the trickling streams, moss-covered rocks and feathered ferns beneath you. Soak up the breath-taking views over the rainforest canopy and canyon, and take your time at the viewing platforms at the falls before joining us for morning tea. You can use your phone/ camera to snap some photos along the way. The walk will take approximately 1-2 hours.
