Bluff Falls Nature Walk
Burrowa-Pine Mountain National Park
Tucked away between the Murray Valley Highway and the Murray River is Mt Burrowa. At 1300 metres, this heavily timbered plateau with steep spurs was formed nearly 350 million years ago by cooling molten lava.
This walk to Bluff Falls follows Bluff Creek as it winds past magnificent blue gums, peppermints, alpine ash and colourful wattles. Rosellas, cockatoos, robins and many other bird species are commonly seen, and you may spot a lumbering wombat or shy wallaby crossing the track. The track emerges from the deep sheltered valley for a dramatic view of the falls, which become a surging torrent after winter and spring rains.
From Bluff Falls, you can either retrace your steps or return to the picnic area along the road and Wombat Track.
