Walking and driving instructions


Keppel Falls is roughly a 20minutes’ drive away from Marysville, or 2hrs from Melbourne. From Marysville travel east on the Marysville-Woods Point Rd/C512, then turn left onto Lady Talbot Dr (well signposted) which is a dirt (un-sealed) road. In 8km you will reach a well-signposted car park (on your left).

The car park has no facilities (no toilets) but has signs about the track.

From the parking follow an easy walking path, which is almost flat, for 15-20 minutes. At the end of the track you will need to cross the river via a foot-bridge and follow ‘rocky’ part of the walk for roughly 5-7minutes. This part of the track can be slippery, so extra care is required. At the end, track brings you to a wooden lookout platform. You will get great view of the waterfall as well as the downstream cascades from here.

Return via the same route.

Beware of leeches.

Keppel Falls is a permanent waterfall. Best to visit this falls is during Spring.
