Agnes Falls


Agnes Falls

Agnes Falls is the highest waterfall in Victoria, falling 59 meters.

Hidden within the green rolling hills of the Strzelecki Ranges, the meandering Agnes River cascades over rocks into a deep picturesque gorge producing Victoria’s highest (59 metres) single span waterfall! After heavy rain the river falls as a spectacular cascade into the gorge.

The water begins with trickles on the southern slopes of the Strzelecki Ranges before it flows into the Agnes River which was found to be ideal or domestic use because of it's low degree of hardness and little organic matter.

The first part of the Agnes River system was completed in 1926 and has since been extended to include Cooks Dam (approx. 2 kilometers upstream), a Water Treatment Plant.

Take a short stroll through the Blue Gum Forest to a viewing area overlooking the falls or relax and enjoy a picnic under the shade of tall blue gums on the grassy banks of the Agnes River.



Agnes Falls Scenic Reserve is situated 160 kilometres south east of Melbourne. The waterfall is reached from the South Gippsland Highway at Toora by following Silcocks Hill Road, Hazel Park Road and Agnes Falls Road. Alternatively the reserve can be reached from Welshpool via Slade Hill Road and Hazel Park Road. These approach roads provide extensive views across Corner Inlet to the peaks of Wilsons Promontory.
