Adventure Description

Strath Creek Falls is a 50m waterfalls located within the Mt Disappointment forest at Clonbinane Victoria. Whilst mostly an isolated location, various places near the area are used for dirt biking. There are campgrounds in the area if you wish to stay the night.

I’ve marked this walk as moderate, as there is a bit of an incline, however, its very short, the trail is well defined (the sides are fenced off), and the trail is short. You will not get lost. Ensure you’re wearing good enough shoes (but no real trekking equipment is required).

The Carpark has a picnic table, and 2 good car spots (although, it may be possible to improvise more). It seems to be reachable without 4WD (although, 4wd is preferred), and it likely isn’t accessible for buses or camper-vans. There is very little phone reception. I personally spent 2 days at Strath Creek, and never saw a second person (probably because there isn’t much else nearby). So it’s also a great place if you want some peace.

The walk starts from the carpark. You follow the signposts and the trail. Along the way you see the valley to the left and there is a viewing platform with additional info at the end of the trail to observe the waterfall. The viewing platform has a placard with a poem on a rock. Once you have finished, do a U-Turn and return to the car-park.

It shouldn’t take longer than 30mins.

Please note: I have seen this walk referred to as Murchison falls on one website, however, have been unable to find any usage of the name otherwise. I believe someone probably got creative, however, there are other features in the area which start with “Murchison” in the name, so it may be plausible. So keep in mind if someone talks about “Murchison Falls”, they are probably referring to Strath Creek.
