I have been here a few times now and it sure is a beautiful place. The walk is about a 2.2km Loop, that incorporates the Toorongo Falls & the Amphitheater Falls.



Getting there: Located about 15 mins drive from the town of Noojee. There are a few different ways of getting here. You can come via Willow Grove - a beautiful drive but a little on the windy side or you can come through Warragul/Drouin - which is less windy but still very pretty.



When you arrive at the car park, there is a lovely little picnic area, it would be the perfect place for a family outing. As you start your way up, you come across a little bridge that goes across the Toorongo River. With its huge boulders all throughout the river, the ferns that hug the waters edge and the rushing waters, this makes for some very pretty photos.



Once you walk over the bridge you will come to a junction, both of the signs say to go right but you can go either way. Going left will take you to the amphitheater falls first. We followed the signs and went right.



The walk up to the falls is mostly uphill, with a few stairs along the way. Its not terribly hard or long but will definitely get the heart rate up. Along the way you have beautiful scenery, you walk among the tall ferns and beside the river. Its not a long walk and before you know it your at the Toorongo Falls. Its an amazing waterfall, very pretty and big too.



Now your off to your next waterfall and from here, its all downhill. Its very pleasant part of the walk as you walk along the hillside through the ferns. It only took us about 10 mins to reach the Amphitheatre Falls. The lookout platform here is quite high and you can see right through it. Just warning anyone with a fear of heights, you may get a little nervous, because it did make me nervous.




The rest of the walk is lovely. You again walk next to the river and get some really pretty views.



The only bad thing i can say about this walk is that there were a lot of trees that had been carved into by what looked like hundreds of people. I have to say I've never seen anything like it on any other walk.



It is a beautiful walk and with some absolutely beautiful scenery. A must do and make sure to put it on your to do list.
