Waterfalls in Melbourne
Waterfall Seasons of Australia - The Waterfall Guide
This seasonal guide to waterfalls in Melbourne recommends the best time of year and the best time of day to visit each waterfall using hydrologic knowledge to get the most out of your visit. I have personally visited and photographed all of the waterfalls on this website.
Select Your Waterfall:
Click or tap on each waterfall title or picture to find your next day trip, holiday destination, bushwalk, photo shoot or picnic location. Olinda Falls are the best waterfalls for viewing within the Dandenong Ranges on the eastern fringe of Melbourne. The falls are broken into the upper and lower falls about 180 metres apart, with a little pedestrian bridge for viewing from directly in front of the lower section… These tiny falls are in the heart of lush Sherbrooke Forest in the Dandenong Ranges. The walk to the falls is probably the star attraction here, so enjoy the fresh air staring up in admiration at the giant pillars of trees. Finish your walk at the falls, which you'll find hiding in amongst the tree ferns… Catch a train or ride your bike along the Yarra bike trail from the city centre to the only waterfalls in the inner suburbs of Melbourne. A viewing platform has recently been installed out over the edge of the river…

If you are planning a half or full day trip from Melbourne to other parts of Victoria, you can also visit waterfalls in North East Victoria, waterfalls in Western Victoria, or waterfalls in Gippsland.
