Park the car opposite the falls entrance, then cross the road to begin the walk which follows the Kiewa River for much of the way. The walk is easy and pleasant, with great rewards at the end. There are a few viewing areas, but the...More

Quite impressive, especially during or just after rain. Even more so during the snow thawing period at the end of the season. Short and easy walk to the first look out where you can see the river and the falls and then a few steep...More

Right from the start of the walk you can hear the sound of water. Its an easy walk towards the falls. Even my 3 year old was able to walk and go right up to the end. Very scenic and calm.

I love the exhilaration that you get from being around the water falls I get so energised. It is an easy trek to get to the viewing platforms.

This waterfall was hidden until the big bushfires revealed it. The walk in is relatively short and not difficult. You can choose to take the stairs down or just go as far as the first viewing platform. Parking is close to the entrance to the...More
