Bluff Falls Nature Walk

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.

Follow the trail along 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 keep a look out for the odd lumbering wombat or shy wallaby crossing the track. The track emerges from the deep sheltered valley providing a dramatic view of the falls, which become a surging torrent after winter and spring rains.

From Bluff Falls, either retrace your steps or return to the picnic area along the road and Wombat Track.
