Hopetoun Falls  by Mieke Boynton

The Otways, Victoria (Australia)

I spent a day (from before dawn until dusk) exploring the Otway Ranges in Victoria over the weekend… WOW! Unbelievably beautiful. I can’t believe I’ve lived in Melbourne for so long and never really been there. This is Hopetoun Falls… I gazed at it for about half an hour!

    Great shot Mieke! When I had my only visit to the area, it was a very hot summer, and didn’t get to see much more than the coast – which itself is just awesome, so these are showing my what I missed!

  • I went to the coast for about 20mins… then decided I wanted to explore the rainforest… and I’m glad I did! But if it was summer when you visited, even if you had’ve made it to these falls, they wouldn’t have had so much water. I was lucky… it’s been raining!

    Did you manage to find Lower Kalimna Falls Mieke?

  • Argh! Add it to the “to-do” list! ;) Luckily my friends have a property near there, and I’m allowed to go back. I might head there before Easter and visit all the places I missed this time around =D
