Visit Cataract Island Pools on the precipice of the New Falls

unique geology of the new falls

Cataract Island is uniquely positioned on the site where rushing waters are slowly carving a pathway northwards, eroding the softer material behind the present basalt base of the falls.  In time, the falls will move back and a new gorge will form.

Visitors to Cataract Island enjoy capturing photographs against the imposing, panoramic views of the Island.  Visitors can take time to explore views from all angles, and of course take a dip in the infinity pool (if they dare) for that iconic, once-in-a-lifetime photograph.

suitable for all levels of adventurers

Although the more intrepid traveller will enjoy the thrill of a splash in the natural infinity pool right on the edge of the falls, there is plenty to enjoy for those who would prefer to keep their swimming activities to the calmer first pool.
