Marysville - beautiful Marysville. It was Victoria's "Camelot" A very pretty
little town with English Oaks
lining the streets, with quaint, old-fashioned shops and homes, and an aura of yesteryear,
a truly beautiful
and serene hamlet set in magnificent forest.

This is dedicated to all those who were touched by the Black Saturday bushfires and to the
brave fire
fighters who battled with the forces of nature.

Steavenson Falls ~ after Black Saturday

Although I have been back to Marysville several times since that fateful day in February 2009, this was the first time I have been back to the Falls. I felt saddened and a sense of something lost. I filmed this on Sunday 7th November (2010) and as the area re-generates, will film that too.

Steavenson Falls

Victoria's highest waterfalls, the Steavenson Falls descend 84 metres to the bush and fern-fringed Steavenson River below. The Falls were named after John Steavenson, who first visited the site of what is now Marysville in 1862, the falls opened to tourists in 1866. They are a popular attraction and at night are illuminated by floodlights powered by hydro-electricity created by the thundering water.

You can hear the sounds of gushing water long before you see it. They are a mere 5 minute drive from Marysville - just follow Falls Road from the town centre through luscious tree ferns and forest to the car park. A short walk of 350 metres gives you your first sighting. Spend some time ambling along one of the many walks available around the Steavenson Falls Reserve - they range from easy to more difficult.
