The Toorongo Falls Reserve (approx. 100 kms east of
Melbourne) is near the of the town of Noojee in Gippsland.
At the car park is a 750 metre walking track through the tall wet forest to the Toorongo Falls. This photo was taken not far from the beginning of the bushwalk track,you can walk to the falls or just appreciate the forest and river scenery along the way. A longer loop walk to the nearby Amphitheatre Falls can be undertaken. As well as bushwalking, the site is also great for picnicking and camping.
Along the way to the Toorongo Falls Reserve is the historic trestle bridge, originally built in 1919 as part of a railway used to freight timber out of the district. This stop is also great for bushwalking or a picnic as you can walk along the top of the restored bridge, where a walking and cycling trail has been constructed along the former railway line.
