Snobs Creek Falls
Snobs Creek Falls has a spectacular viewing platform that is fixed to a rock face on the side of the falls, jutting out in front of the rushing water. The vegetation around the falls contains a wide variety of ferns, mosses and fungi indigenous to the moist eucalypt forest environment created by the falls.
From the carpark there is an approx. 150 metre easy grade walk to the platform as you stand watching the power of the water plummeting 20m into creek below.
The site also has a second short walking track to the cascades, about 100 metres upstream of the falls. The cascades are a series of small rock drops in quick succession, with a wide curtain of water falling into the pool at the top of the cascades.
About a 2 hour and 10 minute drive north-east of Melbourne via Maroondah Hwy. Snobs Creek Road is located along the Goulburn Valley Hwy between Thornton and Eildon and the falls are roughly 7km from the Snobs Creek Road turn off. Roads to access the falls are dirt but are suitable for 2WDs.
The carpark at the falls has limited access for about two or three cars at a time. If there is no parking, you can park off the road about 50-100 metres further on, keeping a look out for other oncoming cars or logging trucks.
