Water can enhance your mood and calm your soul. Take the plunge and visit one of our scenic water features.

Trentham Falls – Coliban River Scenic Reserve is one of the longest single drop waterfalls in Victoria, plunging some 32 metres over basalt columns. There is no access to the top or base of the falls due to unstable cliffs but visitors can best enjoy the waterfall from the viewing platforms. The reserve protects one of the best remnants of vegetation in the area, stands of large manna gum, stringy bark, messmate, narrow-leaved peppermint as well as seasonal wildflowers.

Sailors Falls – Hepburn Regional Park can be viewed from the picnic area located near the road. The steps to the waterfall have been upgraded with a non-slip walking strip which provides easy entry to the base of the waterfall and allows wheelchair access to the first viewing platform.

Turpin Falls – Turpin Falls Scenic Reserve is 12.6km from Kyneton and is one of several waterfalls and associated deep pools located along the Campaspe River. Visitors can enjoy scenic views of the falls from a lookout located a short walk from the carpark. There are no amenities or general facilities, such as toilets and picnic tables, but these can be found in the nearby Kyneton. Pedestrian access to the waterhole is subject to seasonal track closures during the autumn period due to risk issues.

The Cascades – Just 25 minutes east of Castlemaine, The Cascades are a series of waterfalls and rockpools flowing from the Coliban River. It is a fun pastime for kids, climbing over rocks and splashing through pools of water.  It is also a great spot for reflection and solitude.  Take your picnic basket, there are several tables near the parking area.
