Trentham - Trentham Falls




Trentham Falls is one of the longest single drop waterfalls in Victoria, plunging some 32 metres over basalt columns. Trentham Falls was formed some five million years ago from molten lava rapidly cooling as it flowed along the old Coliban River valley. At the base of the Falls, quartz gravel and the former river bed can be seen. The Falls reserve protects one of the best remnants of original vegetation in the area, with stands of manna gum, messmate, stringybark and narrow-leaved peppermint. The reserve is ideal for picnics or barbecues, with picnic tables, fireplaces and toilets provided for visitors. The Trentham Cascades are a short walk further north from the Falls Reserve car park.

To get there, take Falls Road (the continuation of High Street) from the town centre past the football ground and Golf Club. Turn right at the T-intersection at the Daylesford road, and then left at the sign some 100 metres up the road.

Directions from Melbourne - Travel over the Westgate bridge to the Western ring road. From here take the Western Ring road to the calder highway. Travel down the calder highway to Woodend. At leave the highway at Woodend and proceed down the Tylden-Woodend Road. At Tylden turn down the Trentham Road and about after about 6km turn down the Trentham Falls road. Proceed along this road until you see a sign leading into the falls.

Review:


It is only about 100m from the car park to the falls viewing area. Due to the danger of falling rocks from the unstable cliffs, you are not permitted to go down the path to the base of the falls (although the signs didn't stop some people). You do get a nice panoramic view of the falls from the viewing platform. The parking area has a few unshaded picnic tables and toilets.
