Lal Lal Falls (Lal Lal)




The Lal Lal Falls which are about 30m high are best after heavy rain. During prolonged dry periods the falls may not be flowing.

The access to the falls is via a bitumen road. There is a large picnic area with rotunda, toilets and a playground. The viewing platform provides clear views of the fall. However, the path which leads to the base of falls is now closed due to the death of two students from a rockfall in 1990.

Review:


Access to the falls is via a bitumen road and near the falls there is a small playground and a shelter with one table, BBQs, three seats and information boards. A big grassy area also has three unshaded tables, water tap and toilets.

There is a 200m walk to a viewing platform which has a long distance view of the falls or you can walk to the von Guerard viewing site which is a little further away.

When we visited in February there was absolutely no water in the stream above the falls. It looks like a period of heavy rain is needed to see the falls at there most spectacular. Even so, it's a nice view looking up the gully to the black coloured rock of the falls.

There are two walking tracks which extend beyond the picnic reserve into the conservation zones of the larger reserve. The Lal Lal Falls track provides a short circular walk through the eastern conservation zone. It begins at a viewing seat where visitors can enjoy the same view of the Lal Lal Falls gorge that inspired artists such as Eugene von Guerard. The track, marked by bollards, follows the Lal Lal Creek escarpment downstream to the eastern edge of the reserve. This point overlooks the junction of the Lal Lal Creek and Moorabool River (west branch) now part of the Lal Lal Reservoir. From there, visitors can retrace their path or follow the fence line across the open grassland back to the bench seat and gravel path. The track is gently undulating and the return walk takes about 30 minutes.

The Moorabool Falls Walking Track traverses the western conservation zone of the Lal Lal reserve. It is a 5.6 km return walk.

The track to the base of the falls has been closed after the tragic death of two school children from a rockfall. The top of the falls is fenced off but the wire fence has been pushed down to enable people to get through the fence. You need to be vigilant that children do not try and get through because the top of the falls is a dangerous place to explore.
