Yesterday I revisited Wilhelmina Falls again to GPS and measure them. The main tier is a massive 73m high with another 24m of cascades above this in three more tiers. This makes it the highest tier within 100km of Melbourne and one the highest overall in this area.
Falls Creek has a reasonable large catchment on a plateau which then falls over a huge granite slab at Wilhelmina Falls. It is the only waterfall near Melbourne that has an open mountain top view condusive to sunset shots so this photo has been on my list of shots to take for a while. Not the world’s most spectacular sunset but pretty happy with it all the same.
Thanks as always for viewing, commenting and reading.
For full details of this and 200 other waterfalls within 100km of Melbourne you will need to wait for the release of my next book ’Melbourne’s Waterfalls – 200 waterfalls within 100km of Melbourne’. I’m up to my second proof so am getting closer to production standard hopefully it will be out in late 2013.
