We visited here after it had been raining for a few days so the falls were working well. Hopkins Falls is less than a 1/2 hour drive from Warrnambool and worth a visit after rain.

It’s worth the little drive out of Warrnambool to have a look at these pretty falls, it’s an easy walk to the viewing area and there are picnic tables & toilets, just a shame that the picnic tables aren’t actually facing the waterfall.

Tried to visit here from warrnambool but got utterly lost. We had a map, gps and we asked a local but still no luck. Needs better signage.

Took grandchildren to see the falls and although water low at this time of the year it is such a beautiful spot The information boards give history of the area and the Treacherous nature of the river in flood. Worth the visit
