Won­der­ful wa­ter­fall worth the visit

North East Tourist News - - WANGARATTA -

JUST mo­ments from Wangaratta is this rugged wa­ter­fall, one of the ma­jor wa­ter­falls in the Warby-Ovens Na­tional Park that has ben­e­fited from the wet win­ter ex­pe­ri­enced in the North East.

The Briens Gorge falls are sit­u­ated near the Ju­bilee Golf Club.

To get there, take Wan­gandary Road off the Wangaratta Yar­ra­wonga Road and fol­low it un­til you reach Ju­bilee Road.

From there, head to­wards the golf club but take a left at Grand­view Road, where signs will point you to­wards the Briens Gorge car park.

Take a short walk along the path a few hun­dred me­tres and you can witness the falls, which feed into an un­der­ground spring.

There are pic­nic fa­cil­i­ties near the car park and it is a tran­quil spot to en­joy the bush­land and lo­cal flora and fauna.

Vis­i­tors are urged to keep safety in mind at all times, in­clud­ing wear­ing ap­pro­pri­ate footwear, stay­ing on the tracks pro­vided, and avoid­ing wet and slip­pery ar­eas in and around the wa­ter­fall.

For more in­for­ma­tion on the at­trac­tions in the area in­clud­ing other nearby wa­ter­falls, visit park­web.vic.gov.au or speak to the friendly staff at your near­est vis­i­tor in­for­ma­tion cen­tre.
