One of the region’s most iconic waterfalls, plummeting 84 metres and flowing all year round, is Steavenson Falls. An easy and level graded 700m walk takes you from the car park to a viewing platform at the base of the falls where you can take in the view of one of Victoria's highest waterfalls. Another 800m walk up a steep meandering path, taking approx. 30 minutes, leads you to the top of the falls, offering spectacular views over the valley and the Marysville State Forest.
The falls are incredible in early spring and provide water to run a small hydroelectric plant that supplies power to light the falls at night until 11pm. Toilet facilities and wheelchair access to the viewing platform at the base of the falls are available.
This iconic natural landmark can be accessed via Steavenson Falls Carpark, which is located 3km along the bitumen sealed Falls Road. Alternatively, from the centre of town you can take an approx. 3.4km one way walk to the base of the falls if you're feeling up for a hike.
* Please note when parking at Steavenson Falls there is a $3 fee so bring coins. The money goes towards the upkeep and maintenance of toilets, paths and facilities within the area to ensure it is attractive, accessible and enjoyable for all future users.
