Overview

Highlights

Agnes Falls Scenic Reserve; explore the Strzelecki Ranges and see the highest single span falls in Victoria, approx 200km from Melbourne. This spectacular waterfall cascades down a series of rocks over a 59-metre drop. It’s a fantastic sight, especially after heavy rain when the falls and surrounding rockpools are at their best.

The falls are a short 200 metres walk from the carpark to the lookout which has seating. The picnic area is a perfect spot for an outdoor lunch and the picnic shelter and tables are accessible to those in wheelchairs. The area is abundant in bird wildlife and shade is available under the plentiful silver wattles, tall blue gum and blackwood trees.

Before you go: Conditions can change in parks for many reasons. For the latest information on changes to local conditions, please visit the relevant park page on the Parks Victoria website. Be bushfire ready in the great outdoors. Refer to the Bushfire Safety section on the Parks Victoria website for tips on how to stay safe.

Important Information

Guidelines

  • Always do some research before heading out for your journey. Visit the parks website for up to date information on the current conditions.
  • Always enjoy waterfalls from trails and marked viewing points. Do not climb over barriers as cliff edges and slippery surfaces may cause injury or death.
  • Only swim where permitted. Don’t jump from cliff edges into water bodies.
  • Swimming near or under waterfalls can be dangerous due to strong currents, submerged hidden rock ledges and other dangers. The force of a waterfall can be incredibly strong and unfortunately, many people have drowned. Follow warning signs and take caution.
  • Stay safe and get the most out of your park visit by preparing for natural hazards and other outdoor risks. You are responsible for your own safety and the safety of those in your care.
  • Wear suitable footwear and ensure to bring a hat and sunscreen to protect yourself from the elements.
  • Plan ahead and ensure to take enough food and water for your journey.
  • Always stay on the marked tracks where possible. Never climb fences, they are there for your own safety.
  • Please consider the environment, take your rubbish with you or place in the bins provided. We want to ensure these beautiful places are still here for our future generations to enjoy.
  • Ensure to let a responsible adult know of your plans and report back into them once you have finished exploring for the day.
  • National park and camping fees may apply, check the parks website for bookings and further details.
