• Holstein Dam waterfall

Visit the Holstein Dam. From the falls you can see the fall colours enroute to Holstein and at the falls and millpond. 

The best view of the waterfalls is from just downstream of the falls at the entrance to the Park. You can also peer down on the waterfall from the old railway trail that runs along the top of the dam. You can look straight down at the falls from the old railway bridge.  

Horse & buggy rides by the local Mennonite farmers are available about a km. away. Buggy rides need to be booked in advance.
