This is another waterfall my mate Don Wilson was good enough to show me. Being a photographer and a fisherman he instantly understood the significance of the name, one that would of escaped my comprehension completely without the benefit of his knowledge.
Fuscus Falls form a natural barrier that halts introduced and carnivorous trout varieties from entering the headwaters of this river. These headwaters are one of only twenty known locations where the endangered Barred Galaxias (Galaxias fuscus) survive. So to these fish, the waterfall that bares their name, is quite literally the key to their continued survival.
After Fuscus we visited Rubicon Falls then home to Don’s place where I got a copy of his latest book The Wild Heart of the Yarra Valley which is jam packed with the most amazing photography of this area, highly recommended and a steal at $20.00.
