Valley Walk, Percydale VIC 3478

Features

  • Waterfall
  • Bushwalking track
  • Birdwatching
  • Gold fossicking
This gorgeous seasonal waterfall within the Pyrenees State Forest is accessible by an easy 0.5 km walk from the Waterfalls Campground. The walking track is very scenic and runs alongside a beautiful stony creek. 

The waterfall is only flowing in the winter months or after a heavy rain - the images posted on this page show the waterfall with minimal water flow (images will be updated as water levels increase). This waterfall is an impressive spot to visit even when the water isn't flowing, as the huge slabs of rock where the waterfall flows down over several large, step-like levels are a sight to behold with or without water.

Sure-footed climbers can clamber up beside the rocky wall and reach another level where the upper section of the waterfall drops down onto a platform before finally flowing over the lower drop. There is a rocky overhang up the top which looks like it has a cave underneath from a distance, but upon closer inspection is quite shallow. Take care if climbing, as the grass and rocks can be extremely slippery and a fall would likely result in serious injury.

There are many other spectacular waterfalls throughout the Victorian Goldfields to explore, as well as plenty of great bushwalking tracks.



DID YOU KNOW...

  • Bushwalking is an excellent way to get outdoors and exploring nature.
  • Kids love to climb! There are plenty of places throughout the Goldfields with great trees, rocks, fallen logs and more for kids to climb up, around and over.
  • Gold prospecting is the recreational act of searching for natural gold deposits in the ground using tools such as gold detectors, gold pans and gold sluices. The Goldfields region of Victoria is a popular destination for gold prospectors, with many of the world's largest alluvial gold nuggets found in the area!
