This seasonal guide to waterfalls in Gippsland 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.
It ensures you have the best chance of seeing water flowing over the falls in full sun.
Compiled by hydrologist Brad Neal, the guide also includes information about
how to get there, facilities available, viewing angles, waterfall dimensions, swimming
opportunities, a photo/video and my personal impressions. I have personally visited and photographed all
of the waterfalls on this website.

Stand directly below this cascade in the Bunyip State Forest north of Drouin, and watch the water tumble down the rock face and beneath your

What does the W stand for in W Tree Falls? Hmm, there is plenty to ponder at this wayside stop on the way to the Snowy
Mountains high country. A little patch of rainforest that is a teaser of the wilderness up ahead…
There are lots of lizards wandering around in the bush near these falls and a viewing platform that directly overlooks the falls. Make a day of it
by exploring some of the other walking trails that also start at the picnic ground …
There are plenty more waterfalls in Gippsland, it's just that I have not had a chance to visit them yet. The main ones
on my to-visit list are the Agnes River Falls in South Gippsland, and Toorongo Falls in West Gippsland.
