Marriotts Falls 2012 Dec

Marriotts Falls 9 Dec 2012
These falls involve only a short detour from the road going past Mt Field National Park, and are near the tiny township of Tyenna. A signpost from the main road directs you to the carpark. It is 3 kms each way to the falls, which are on Marriotts Creek that flows into the Tyenna River. The walk is really beautiful, beginning beside the lovely Tyenna River with a few tiny cascades (This river looks perfect for liloing), passing briefly through a fairly clear paddock  with one of the hugest acacia melanoxylon trees I have ever seen in my life, and then returning to lush green forest with moss until the falls are reached. Both there and back took me a shade under thirty minutes. Unfortunately, there are quite a few fallen trees at the base of the falls.

I first visited the falls when I was passing by, having come from climbing Clear Hill and the Needles, and this did not happen to be waterfall season. I therefore haven’t yet done them justice. (I also own much better equipment these days). A return is necessary.
