Take out your walking shoes
Named after the brothers who found the falls in the early 1880s, Keppel Falls is a magnificent cascade of water that belongs to the Taggerty River. The walk to the falls is 2km (return), an easy to medium standard with minor climbs, it could take you 1 hour to return at a leisurely pace.

The walk boasts a multitude of plants and bird life, always keep watch for the elusive Lyrebird, whom I always seem to miss even though I have my camera ready, they are known to come out after the rain (worms I guess).

If you are traversing the path after the rain, please make sure to wear proper shoes as it can get slippery and you don't want to soil your pants when you slip. Also if you're not a fan of leeches I would advise you to refrain from wearing shorts.

The walk is a great way to connect with nature and also give your legs some exercise.

The falls is situated along Lady Talbot Drive, which is off Woods Point Road in Marysville. If coming from the Maroondah Highway, turn right at the roundabout once you're in the Marysville township and Lady Talbot Drive will be on the left soon after.

Bicycles and pets not permitted. Early morning light will be great for photos.

I haven't been there but would love to do this walk, it is such a beautiful area. I have a postcard collection that belonged to my grandmother and one of the postcards is an early 1900's painting of this area.
