Toorongo Falls - Noojee



The Toorongo Falls are situated in the Noojee State Forest a few kilometres north-east of the Noojee township.

The drive up to the falls car park runs beside the picturesque Toorongo River. At the car park there is a well appointed picnic area with toilets and tables.

A well formed 1.2km track leads up to the falls. The gradient is easy with just a few short steeper sections negotiated with natural rock steps.

The track runs beside the Little Tooronga River with glimpses of the river through the dense wet forest understorey.

Along the way there is ample opportunity to admire some of Victoria's best species of ferns and tall trees.

The recommended time of 30-45min for the walk can be extended somewhat if you are inclined to be distracted by the flora and fauna on the way.

As you approach the falls, glimpses of the top few metres can be seen through the trees. I wasn't able to find any data on how high these falls are, but they are much higher than I expected – the majority of the lower sections being concealed by vegetation.

From the viewing platform you get some beautiful views of the top portion of the falls.

Toorongo Falls – one of West Gippsland's best beauty spots. Hope you enjoyed the trip.

  1. Enjoyed the virtual trip to the beautiful Toorongo Falls. You got some great photos. Your scrubwren is not all that different from our's. I've only seen the White-browed once when I was over in S.A.

  2. 'Scrubies' are one of my favourite bush birds and they seem to be either that shy you have no hope of seeing them in the undergrowth or like these ones, so accustomed to people/tourists that they carry on regardless right in front of you.
