The Waterfalls at Falls Creek

On December 19, 2010, from our home base in Bright, we travelled to the Falls Creek Village, high up in the Victorian Alps, 375 km NE of Melbourne, through Mt Beauty.

The day was extremely cold and raining, and thick fog was blanketing the region.

At the Falls Creek Village, visibility was down to about 50 m, and it had been snowing, with the air temperature at noon about 2 degrees!

Through the fog, We found the Falls Walking Track, near the entrance to the Village, and followed this to the Falls, about 15 minutes each way. Snow was lying on the Track.

The Falls were magnificent, dropping about 50 m over rocks and down into the valley, creating huge spray and mist.

A new series of boardwalks had recently been constructed near the Falls, which will be explored on a future trip!

See all of the Photos of our trip!
