Agnes Falls Scenic Reserve

Turning off the South Gippsland Hwy at Toora, we headed up past the giant wind turbines and towards the Strzelecki Ranges.

The rolling green hills, usually the greenest of green,  were a shade of late Summer gold on the day of our visit, but still very picturesque.

Dairy farms are big business around here and hundreds of black and white cows dotted the hills.

A short walk from the carpark, an easy trail led us to a viewing area of Agnes Falls, the highest single span falls in Victoria. We could hear the cascades as we walked, and caught glimpses of the waterfall through the trees.

It was too long to capture the entire 59 metre fall in one photo, you'll just have to tilt your head -> that way to imagine its height :P

A lovely picnic area by the river was the perfect spot to have a snack and a drink, before heading off on our next adventure.
