Snobs Creek Falls are a popular tourist falls in the Goulburn Valley outside of Melbourne. Having now visited over 100 waterfalls in this area I would consider these to be the most spectacular in terms of size and volume although most visitors merely see the tip of the iceberg as the track only takes you to the bottom of the first tier. Wanting to see as much as I could I descended as close as I could down the steep ground next to the falls which is a fairly serious endeavor, on the way out I exited over easier ground further from the falls (in a relative sense). There are five distinct tiers all up.
Last time I visited I was with my wife and our 6 month old so for obvious reasons only saw the top tier (although I was left pinning for more).
