A quiet picnic at Trentham Falls

If you are heading for Victoria’s mineral springs area, and you are in not too much of a hurry, take a break at Trentham Falls.

Trentham Falls is reportedly one of the longest single drop waterfalls in Victoria, with a plunge of some 32 metres over ancient basalt columns. 

Trentham Falls, Victoria
The falls have a drop of around 32 metres, and can be spectacular during winter.

The falls are part of the Coliban River which has its source on the northern slopes of the Great Dividing Range. The falls reserve is a few kilometres off the Trentham/Daylesford Road.

From the car park, it’s a short walk through typical Australian bush to the viewing platform that overlooks the falls. Movement around the area is generally restricted to the designated paths as the cliffs surrounding the falls are unstable (although I have seen some adventuress people playing in the rockpool below the cascading water). 

It’s a lovely spot for a picnic and some quiet contemplation of the surrounding bushland.
