No - I did not see any assistance available for elderly visitors. In fact, my elderly husband stayed in the Visitors' Centre whilst I did the long walk to the Waterfall. Be aware that there is also not a lot of seating outside. Hope this helps - please let me know if I can give you any further info. regards
