the far upper yarra and the falls.
.hanks to the Surveyor-General and the Public Works department the inhabitants of hot and dusty Melbourne have had some of the most beautiful and varied scenery in Victoria placed at their disposal. To get to this place you take the train to Warburton, and catch the coach to Walsh's Creek, or M'Veigh's. This coach drive follows the River Yarra for some twenty miles, and is without exception one of the best for revealing beautiful river and mountain scenes in a comfortable and safe manner. The time occupied is about four hours, so you get to the end of your vehicular journey the first day. Good accommodation can be had at Walsh's Creek, where you stay the night, and then next morning start on a fifteen mile walk to the celebrated falls. This walk is easy in the extreme, for the gradient is the same as the River Yarra, which is followed up. All along this track, which is well made and clear, abundance of water may be obtained. The tourist can dawdle along as he pleases to reach the end of the stage by evening, at the rate of fifteen miles in twelve hours, if he wishes. There should be no complaint of hard work, even by ladies. At the end of the track there is a well built hut of two rooms, with bunks and cooking utensils, for the use of the traveller. Food and bedding must be taken on from Walsh's Creek. If there is a party, a pack horse may be obtained at McVeigh's. The hut is on the creek of the falls for these are not on the Yarra therefore all one has to do is to follow up this creek by a well made track to the falls. There are six falls, over which, in rapids and cascades, the water comes dashing and tumbling down some 700 feet. The farthest fall is only about 1 mile from the hut, and the climbing taken slowly is not hard. The beauty of the scene is beyond description, and will fully recompense one for any trouble and time spent in viewing it. It is gratifying to know that means are now being taken to place such scenery as this trip discloses within reach of the public. The trip from Melbourne and return can be done in four days, with time to spare.
