About the Walk
A moderate walk which climbs up to Wilhelmina Falls then continues through the forest to an old timber tram track back down to the river and along the valley. A very pleasant walk with a mixture of vegetation, scenery and gradients.
The Walk in Detail
After leaving the car park the walk climbs up from the Murrindindi River along Falls Creek to Wilhelmina Falls, with views of the 75m drop of the falls down the smooth granite slabs.
After passing the falls the walk then continues along Boroondara Track through peppermint, messmate and mountain grey gums. Plenty of birdlife is common here.
The track then follows along an old timber tram track back down to the river and along the tranquil river valley to the car park.
Where do we start?: Wilhelmina Car Park, Murrindindi Road, Murrindindi Scenic Reserve.
How do we get to the start?: From Melbourne- travel along the Melba Highway to the intersection of Murrindindi Road just before Devlins Bridge. Turn right and drive 10 km to the Reserve until you come to the sign posted Wilhelmina Falls Car Park.
If it is wet, it might be slippery around the falls area. Extra care should be taken here
