We all enjoyed this experience but the two younger children needed to be carried most of the way. The falls were beautiful and the air along the walk needs to be bottled and taken back home to Melbourne.

It was a winding walk with lots of the red parrots flying about, crisp fresh forest air and a feeling of being in the wilderness. A must do walk if in Mt Beauty.

A gentle walk to the Falls makes for a pleasant stop. There is lots of parking opposite the trailhead. Don't forget to fill out the intention book.

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

We visited Fainter Falls mid-September during the start of the snowmelt and it was stunning; the water was crashing against the rocks along the river as we followed the path, such a wonderful sound. You could hear the waterfall in the distance as well. The...More

Easy free parking across the start of the trek along the road (there is a wide bay). Sign the book and off you go. It takes about 10 mins to the first lookout. Another 7 mins to the next lookout. Then down some steps to...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.
