Starting from Masons Falls Picnic Area in Kinglake National Park, Masons Falls Walk leads to the Masons Falls viewing platform. This walking track is perfect for Kinglake residents who want a short getaway close-by.
These 45 metre falls can tumble with a powerful roar or a gentle trickle. It depends on the waters of Running Creek flowing from the top of the Great Dividing Range, which is only a short distance away at the Kinglake-Whittlesea Road. The waterfall usually flows all year round but is particularly impressive after heavy rains. Running Creek flows on to become part of Arthur’s Creek, then Diamond Creek, before flowing into the Yarra River.
Kinglake National Park is an area that has been steeped in myth, legend and lore for thousands of years. From ancient Aboriginal tales from the Dreamtime to the more recent devastation of the Black Saturday bushfires, this is a place where nature has shown its power and history has been made.
Masons Falls Walk is a 2km track which will take about 45 minutes to complete. The walking trail offers a beautiful view of Masons Falls.
