There’s a little-known park in the Upper Murray region of northeast Victoria where you can find Bluff Falls – spectacular in winter and spring, a trickle in summer. The Falls, and the park are worth a look around. In fact the park and I go back a good many years – I had my first overnight bushwalk there around about 23 years ago. After all these years, its perhaps not surprisingly a place where I go to recharge and re-centre, to take friends and to just sit and listen to the sounds of the abundant birdlife.
Whilst there’s now a road up to the Falls, there is a great way of getting there which takes a bit of effort, but doesn’t tie you up for hours walking. If you park at the Bluff creek camping ground at the entrance to the park, there is a walking track which takes you along the creek to the falls. It’s about 2 hours return and well marked. Keep an eye out for the big leaves of the blue gums along the way and with luck, you might even see a lyre-bird.
