Wilhelmina Falls

Our Favourite! This is definitely one of the best walks within a few hours of Melbourne. A childhood favourite, this walk crosses the Murrindindi River on a swing bridge then quickly starts a moderate but persistent climb towards the large rock slab. You’ll be mesmerized by this waterfall with its sheet of cascading water that seems to race towards your feet and the waiting rockpool at the base. Continuing up a staircase which ascends the beside the flows, this walk then offers views of the valleys and nearby ranges before taking the steep descent off the other side. Bring some good legs for this one!
