We also tried to follow the carpark map to find a waterhole in the other direction but we never found it. If someone has an idea of where it is and some photos, I'd be very grateful to get some tips!
2. Paradise Falls: Alpine National Park I'm always a bit hesitant when it comes to visiting waterfalls in Victoria - especially on sunny days when it might be a bit dry.
But this is where I use Instagram to my advantage. I like to check photos posted at that location, so I can see the most recent photos of that waterfall. Of course, if there are no photos, you have to decide whether to take the risk.
You have to go through the fallen burrs on the ground and open them with your feet, as they are a bit fuzzy/spiky to touch with your hands. You then pick out the chestnut, if there is still one in there, and place into your basket!
Besides this activity, Wandiful Produce also run many events and demonstrations focusing on sustainable produce. Keep up to date with their events here.
5. Wandi Nut Festival: White Star Road, Wandiligong, 3744 (check for updates next year in case they change locations!)
Experience the only chestnut festival in Australia in the rural High Country region. The area comes alive with local food and drink stalls in addition to some fun activities for the kids.
