This walk follows the Murrindindi River valley and the walk crosses over footbridges and offers river views through a variety of forest types from tall open forest to damp ferny gullies. Wilhelmina Falls Track, which moves away from the river, climbs gradually to the base of the falls, which flow all year round. These spectacular falls drop 75 metres down a steep granite rock face. At the top of the Wilhelmina Falls, a viewing platform is located providing spectacular views of the surrounding mountain range. We’ll have lunch at the Falls and continue our steady climb to the Boroondara track, from where the remainder of the circuit will be mostly a gradual decent or undulating, before returning via the same track following the Murrindindi River. Walkers will need sun protection and to carry plenty of water (this being a summer walk, it may also be a hot day).
