Thanks mate! Not too sure, I was wondering this myself as i'm aware there are a few falls above wye river falls. My best guess would be following a tributary down from Kennett Road or Wye River Road- providing the canyon isn't too steep (the contours look a bit gnarly). I was planning a trip next winter to achieve just that, might need to break out the climbing gear. Cheers :)


Done the entirely of that stretch last winter. Take rope - 2x20m should do.

Be prepared to leave some gear behind to back up your abseil.
Men wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful.

Only on my desktop. Not on my laptop. Plenty on google though

It's not really worth the walk in tbh. big walk through scrub for a waterfall that isn't that imposing.

Much nicer waterfalls in the otways.

Hi MickyB,
Couldn't help but notice your collection of Waterfalls. Most Impressive!
Would like to add this one to the list, but am interested to know if you or anyone else can name them!!!
They are located in Vic but seldom visited or seen.
No it's not a competition, but I like to keep em guessing.

Correcto Mundo!
Not many people are aware of these falls so am impressed with your knowledge.
How did you know and have you visited these falls?
Roaring Mag falls has a very small catchment area and only flows after very heavy rain.
On the 6 occasions that I have visited these falls after decent rain, (over 4 years) have only seen it flowing twice.

Approx 10m drop, in a well known stream, without any maps having marked it.
NE vic.

Have a photo of it, have coordinates for it but never visited it. They do look nice.
