Steavenson Falls Reserve

Steavenson Falls Reserve

Steavenson Falls Reserve Marysville Victoria, Australia Steavenson Falls are one of the tallest in Victoria, with 5 cascades, a total descent of 122 metres, the last having a clear drop of more than 21 metres. Named after John Steavenson, who first visited the site of what is now Marysville in 1862, the falls opened to tourists in 1866. Today they are a popular attraction both by day and night, when they are illuminated by floodlights powered by hydro-electricity created by the thundering water.There are several pleasant walks of varied lengths and levels of difficulty around the Steavenson Falls Reserve. The steep walk to the top of the falls and back takes approximately 40 minutes.Impressive forest covers much of the Steavenson Reserve, including stands of mountain ash, mountain grey gum, messmate and narrow-leafed peppermint, and lyrebirds are often seen in the area in the morning and after rain searching for insects and worms.The falls are 5 minutes drive from Marysville. Follow Falls Road from the town centre through tree ferns and forest to the car park. The falls are 350 metres from the car park. After watching a Doco on the rebuilding of Marysville after the Black Saturday fires, I thought its been a while since I visited the area, and what better way to capture the Steavenson Falls then from the air. So I took the Cameras out and my DJI Phantom2 Vistion+ and captured a snap shot of the Falls in Jan 2015 Music by local Melbourne band Mushroom Giant reverbnation.com/mushroomgiant For more info on Marysville visit marysvilletourism.com
