There are a multitude of awesome waterfalls to see way down south in Australia in the Great Otway National Park. Check out the list we have compliled for some serious rainforest style waterfalls.
Hopetoun Falls in The Great Otway National Park, Victoria, is only around a 30 metre drop, but it’s lush rainforest setting makes it one of the artistically photographed falls in the country.
I was at the waterfalls with the locals in 1989. I stayed in Conway for two months in the wet hanging out. It was the best time of my life. I loved all the people I met and would love to go there again. Diane
I want to know which waterfall has the biggest amount of water flowing over it? Can anyone answer my question WITH EVIDENCE FOR THEIR ANSWER?
A newly released video from the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources highlights the personal and legal perils of entering Sacred Falls State Park on Oahu. Intended to counter countless blogs and websites which encourage hikers to trespass into the park, despite dozens of warning signs, this video traces the tragic history of death […]
Chantry Flats to Stuartevant Falls for years (try, over a fifty year time frame) was a favorite hike of ours. Often two or three times per week by either of the two low-end approaches; occasionally from Wilson parking lot or even Red Box. Weekdays have always been the best. Up past the falls into Winter […]
I grew up in El Monte Ca during a time when the city was spending a goodly amount of money on the parks service basically having all the parks staffed daily during the summer by college student whose main job was to organize activities for us kids. I lived by Fletcher park….we called ourselves the […]
My dad and I hiked these trails many times in the 1940s 1950s. We were told the Indians pronounced it I Ill- e – lu- wan- née. The trail from Happy Isles all around the three falls is breathtaking. Anyway, I was 7 years old the first time we hiked these trails. Adults complain about […]
In 1978 we visited Canaima and stayed near the lagoon. On the way there,our airplane routed us past Angel Falls and we got a good look at the incredible sight. Soon after,we landed near the camp site. We ate our good meals outside under some trees. We spent a lot of time walking on trails […]
It is a wonderful explanation. I was searching for various videos and materials and none satisfies. Your way of explanation is awesome and easily understandable. It would really help me to pass on this information to my child. Thanks a ton
Officially opened in October 2014 the new toilet block, easily found located beside the carpark, and the new picnic tables and shelter, are proving to be another drawcard for visitors coming to view these pretty falls in South Gippsland. The Agnes Falls drop 59 metres to the gorge below, and are only a pleasant 10 […]
I understand your explanation and diagrams. And understand how waterfalls are formed. But my question is why does waterfalls continue running. Pick at waterfall. I understand rain and snow makes water. But that couldn’t supply these waterfalls with continuing water. Does the rain and snow keep adding to the basin supply of water already there. […]
In 2006, I and my two children (daughter, then 15; son, then 17) had spent 7 weeks Down Under, 1.5 of which were mostly on South Island. I am currently completing my 5th book “La Familia Hayburg: Down Under” and constantly compare my notes from then to other accounts of the area. One thing I’ve […]
The Measuring of Falls can produce Inconsistent Numbers because of the Level of the Water in a Lake, Pond or Stream. The level of some Lakes can vary more than 200 Feet, so if the Falls flow into a Lake, the Falls may actually be considerably Taller in the Fall then in the Spring. If […]

As a previous resident of the area I visited the Falls many times. I found the most enjoyable time was during October when the sun was not too hot, the grass had not yet died off and the water was still running from the winter rains. We cooled our drinks in the brook which had […]
you are right. the end of the hike was anticlimatic. wish we had read this before went to this area. oh well good exercise. the view sucked as the trees blocked the view of at least the bottom two thirds of the falls in early september. might go back sometime but when the leaves are […]
Why the jogfalls missing in top 10 ?
I was going there with my friends in the early 70’s when I was in high school. My brothers in the 60’s. There was no trail, no trash, no other people and no writing on the rocks! You could park where ever you wanted on hwy 190. No cops. All there was, was respect for […]
Iguazu Falls made Niagara look like a cup of water. Niagara is great, but Iguazu was unbelievable. Great experiences and the boat ride into the falls was a thrill of a life time (even though, at one point, I thought I might drown – made the mistake of opening my mouth to breath in). And […]
