Eurobin Falls, Mt Buffalo VIC
Waterfall Seasons of Australia - The Waterfall Guide

 
Eurobin Falls consists of sheets of water flowing over the granite rock face of the exposed eastern face of Mount Buffalo. The falls are divided into an upper and lower section, however in reality it is one continuous geological feature, with a flatter grade on the rock face between the two steeper sections. The falls are vast in their height and breadth, making it a challenge to photograph in its entirety.

It is a fairly mild walk over a gentle hill to reach the lower falls, which you can view from the walking track. The rock is stained with various hues of bronze, orange and grey, as the water splits into various subtly different flow paths. The water clings to the rock face throughout.
The walk to the upper falls is much steeper and contains more steps. The viewing area at the base of the upper falls marks the end of the walking track. The view from here is much more impressive than the lower falls, as you squint up to the sky to trace Eurobin Creek several hundred metres up the blinding, bald rock face. In dry weather, if you take appropriate caution, you can also venture out onto the granite slab in between the upper and lower falls to view the upper falls from a slightly different angle, and to get a closer view of Eurobin Creek.

Here is a video of the lower and upper falls, taken shortly before midday in early Autumn, when the falls were flowing after modest rain earlier in the week, but were not in flood:
