Agnes Falls

Photographs taken at Agnes Falls which is the highest waterfall in Victoria.

The best time to visit this small but well maintained park is after heavy rains, when the overflow is stunning as it splashes high over the rocks and walking track. Only a short and very easy walk from the car park and suitable for wheelchairs and elderly walkers. The track itself gives an excellent view of almost the entire waterfall from top to bottom, but even I have done the unspeakable and jumped over the fence to get a better view – but a fall from here would most likely be deadly.

This page includes a map of the area and pictures of the picnic tables, views to the Toora windfarms, rocks, the waterfall, eucalypt trees, native flora, moss and the Agnes River.

    What a wonderful place to discover! The Falls are indeed spectacular after rains, especially when you hear the roar and can feel some spray on your face!
    There are two lookout points as the Falls have a “turn” which, uunfortunately, means you cannot see the Falls in their complete entirety. Perhaps the “powers that be” may put in another walking track to the base one day so you can look up and fully appreciate the 59 metre drop. Another lookout point on the other side of the gorge would be wonderful, too. Of course, the ultimate would be to have a suspension bridge across the gorge! There is such a structure at the Tarra-Bulga National Park, which has become a destination for tourists in itself. Agnes Falls would then truly be a major drawcard in the area. meanwhile, it is still definately worth a visit. Take a picnic lunch and hear all the birds, and read all the information on the Interpretaive signage boards. Yu won’t be disappointed!

    It’s a “secret hideaway”, and worthy of your time and a while-away visit.

    These beautiful falls are reputed to be Victoria’s highest single-span falls, dropping 59 metres to the gorge below.

    Next time you visit Agnes Falls you will be able to see, and use, the new visitor facilities that were completed late-July 2014. In the Reserve you will find a fabulous brand-new octagonal-shaped picnic shelter with two tables and seating undercover, several other new picnic settings in the grounds, and a wheel-chair accessable new toilet block with two unisex cubicles, right on the carpark!
    The grounds are looked after by Parks Victoria with occasional assistance from supervised low security offenders through the Office of Corrections, and plans are currently underway for the future construction of a cantilever viewing platform out from the gorge lookout!
    Find our the latest updates on the “Friends of Agnes Falls” facebook page!
