Visiting Masons Falls in Kinglake National Park

by Tonya Staab

Want to get out into nature in Victoria? Head to Kinglake National Park with the kids and take the 1.4-kilometer round-trip trail to Masons Falls.

About 65 kms north-east of Melbourne is the Kinglake National Park. Well worth a drive if you want to get out of the hustle and bustle of the CBD and get into nature.

We headed to Masons Falls where there are about 13 kilometers of trails to walk, however, we just wandered along the path (about 1.4-kilometer round trip) from the picnic area to the viewing platform at the waterfall. You might get lucky and spot a lyrebird or two, unfortunately, we didn’t despite looking hard, although we did hear them. A wallaby hopped across the path in front of us though which thrilled the kids (okay, and me).

And just because I found this absolutely spectacular, look at the sap on these trees, which are still showing signs of the Black Saturday bushfires that swept through the area in 2009.
