Kanawa Falls is interesting. You can put in at the park below the falls and paddle back up to them. You will find that the falls are incredibly undercut. There is a crack you can paddle up into that adds a little excitement but be very very careful, you'll have to back out.
Boaters have run the falls before but they are strictly off limits now. If you decide to run any of the drops will very likely get arrested. There are warning signs all over the place.
