We visited today and I do not mind spending money but A$25 per person entry is a bit steep for what you get. Yes it’s a nice waterfall, and the water is clear, but spend your time at Blue Lagoon or a boat cruise instead.

Definitely worth going to the falls, it was an easy walk, we had a great guide, who was very informative of the cultures. Had great time in the falls and sliding down the falls

Went to Vanuatu this December 2016, and the original mele cascade waterfalls sadly has dried up. There are now the new waterfalls for tourists which are a further drive but are still beautiful

There is no cost into falls, if you have your own transport.eady to find. but you can pay for someone to drive you there ( which you can bargain price) or go on a tour. Well worth it , we loved it
