Without signage you wouldn't know the waterfall existed. Just off the Ballan-Daylesford Rd. Sturdy steps lead down to a viewing platform, from which you can see the rocky, tree fern filled gorge below. When I visited the waterfall was flowing well but obviously not to...More

Easily my favourite place in Daylesford. A small stream has carved a beautiful gorge allowing a forest to grow in a landscape otherwise dominated by woodland and farms. One of my favourite short walks in Australia, but not the flattest one.

After rain, this is a beautiful waterfall, well worth a drive out from Melbourne. If there’s enough water the fall will split into two creating a double waterfall with long cascades. Even when it hasn’t been raining, the valley down below the waterfall provides a...More

We were driving past and saw the sings and decided to stop and take a look. Nice little hike down to the falls and loop through the mineral springs area. We went at a time when there was hardly anyone else around so it was...More

Unfortunately, the water must have dried up recently, probably because of lack of rain, as there was no water in the waterfall. Very pretty surroundings though, and easy to park there.

The mineral water here is clear than the others. A lot of people stop by with empty bottles to fill up. You can see the fall from the top and with a short wall down the steps you'll the the falls. Its a nice stop,...More
