La La Falls (Warburton)




To reach the falls, follow the signs from Park Road along Old Warburton Road to the start of the track on Irruka Road. You can park your car at the end of Irruka Road to start the walk.

The walk goes along a well made track, through tall Mountain Ash trees and lush tree ferns, before reaching the picturesque falls. There are stone bridges along the way.

The falls are said to be named after past landowner Leila Ward, whose guest house “La La” (meaning Welcome Welcome) was located in the area.

The La La walking track follows the old timber railway for much of its length. Constructed in 1909 it is believed that the railway was used to transport logs from the lower reaches of Mount Pride towards a local sawmill.

Review:


A pleasant walk on a well formed track which passes through areas of tree ferns and tall Mountain Ash trees. There are also a number of stone bridges to cross. The track rises steadily but is not too steep. In January we saw two copperhead snakes at different places, one on the track and the other beside the track. They were docile but it was a bit nerve-wracking for the kids to go past them.

There are distance markers every 0.5 km to give a good indication how far you still have to go to reach the waterfall. Although the waterfall is not huge, it did have a decent flow in late January. The water zig-zags down the rock face and then flows through arches in a stone wall which forms part of the viewing platform. To my mind, the patterns in the rock face has the face of an Aboriginal elder - if you can't see it, then just blame my fertile imagination.
