Walking and driving instructions


Cyathea Falls is roughly a 50minutes’ drive away from Traralgon. From Traralgon head south on the Traralgon Creek Rd/C482. In 6km continue on to Traralgon Creek Rd/C483 and follow it for the next 23.5km, then turn right onto Grand Ridge Rd/C484 and stay on it for the next 8.5km. A well-signposted car park is to the left and signed as ‘Tarra Valley Picnic Area’.

The car park has all sorts of facilities, including maps, picnic tables and toilets.

From the parking follow a well-formed path which leads to the falls. It is a 35-40 minutes’ loop walk and the waterfall is located almost in the middle of this loop, so it doesn’t matter which direction to choose. If you walk it anti-clockwise, the first park of the track is gentle uphill walk, and the last part follows the stream (very beautiful views) and has some stairs.

Not sure whether Cyathea Falls is a permanent waterfall or not. Looks like it could have little or no water at all during summer. We recommend to visit it after a decent rain.
