I never knew these falls existed until I stopped in at the information gazebo near the Traralgon South Store and found some information about it. So, we decided to go exploring to find them.

The drive up is very windy and narrow. I would suggest going up there in a 4wd, especially if wet. There were some large pot holes, rough surfaces and some parts with trees across the road in some sections.

Getting there: Coming from Traralgon drive out towards Traralgon South, no need to turn off to Traralgon South Township, keep on the main road. You want to take the turn off for Traralgon Creek Road and Koornalla. Keep following this road until you get to Hoggs Bridge, you will then come across an T intersection, you need to turn left onto Goomballa Rd. It’s about a 5-minute drive up this road until you find what kind of looks like a pull off area on your left - which is where you will find the start of the track.

When you pull up there’s not much to see, honestly you wouldn’t even know there is a waterfall down there. You have to look hard to find the track down the hill, we really saw it by accident. We did try and put a couple of things at the entrance, so people could see where it starts from, but I don’t know how long that will last.

Our wonderful entrance

The walk is very short it only took us 5 minutes to walk down the hill. The track is fairly well worn in, so you do have something to follow. It is very steep and rugged, if its wet its going to be very slippery. On your way down you will see a rope tied to a tree, so you can use that to help you down the really steep part, it came in handy for us as it was very muddy.

This waterfall was very surprising and really enjoyable to find. Also being able to sit on the rocks at the bottom is lovely too, as you can sit and appreciate the falls and river.

I've tried to help as much as i can but if in doubt try to listen out for running water, that's how we actually found them in the beginning.

A really lovely place to visit, I especially loved trying to find them it was a lot of fun.
