Tourist Tips Grampians - Silverband Falls
Distance: 1.5Km return
Start Point: Silverband Falls Carpark
The walk to Silverband Falls follows Diary Creek upstream from the Silverband Falls Carpark. This is an area which was ravaged by the extreme rainfall experienced in January 2011. En route you will see that the original bridge has been washed downstream.
You may need to take care crossing over the replacement stone crossing if the water level has risen. Otherwise the walk is an easy stroll through this much altered landscape where you will see trees which were washed downstream now piled up as if they were matchsticks.
The waterfall itself is marginally deeper as many of the stones which formerly acted as a sump at the base of the falls were washed out now enabling a pool of water to form at the base of the falls again.
The waterfall usually flows year round but is more impressive after rain. This photograph has been taken a few days after moderate rain.
