Artist's Description

I’ve been waterfall hunting around Melbourne in a focused and methodical fashion for seven years now having gone on hundreds of trips and in the process systematically descending almost every waterway whose relief and geology I considered to be conducive to having a waterfall on it. Previously I have visited L Creek 6 times so I thought I knew it pretty well but last week end decided to approach it from above rather than below and do a through trip to measure the 4 tiers that I had previously visited.

To my utter shock this through trip did not eventuate as it ended up taking an entire day descending just one kilometre of this watercourse. It was quite rough and steep but the main reason it took so long was because this one kilometre of creek contains the highest concentration of waterfalls I have yet encountered. Over the course of the day we stopped to GPS, measure and photograph 12 waterfalls of 3 metres height or more.

The shot above is a detail of the highest drop which was 20m overall with this tier being 11m high and is actually a shot of two waterfalls the smaller one on the right being where a tributary of L Creek enters the main watercourse in spectacular fashion. A truly amazing day, the more so for being so unexpectedly prolific.

For the full story of this trip see A day in the life of a waterfall addict #8
