Steavenson Falls are one of Victoria's highest falls with 5 cascades, a total descent of 122 metres, the last having a drop of more than 21 metres.
Named after John Steavenson, who first visited 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.
Steavenson Falls is currently open 7 days a week.
