Rollasons Falls is the gem on Mount Buffalo we all pass by. Involves a 500m climb and descent.
Although Rollasons is only a 2km walk from the road, halfway up Buffalo, this walk starts from the park entrance. The first 2km are fairly steep, rising 350m in about 2km, walking through abundant fern gullies to a fire track. From here the going is easier with views over the Ovens Valley.
There is a short section of road to walk (400m) before we descend to Rollasons Falls. You can visit the upper and lower falls, the latter being a good swimming hole once you have scrambled down to the water's edge, so bring the togs and enjoy.
Retrace your route to descend to the park entrance and the car.
The final hundred or so metres to the Falls has a steep drop off with soft edges and is not recommended for very young children
