Stevensons Falls

Otway National Park, Hordern Vale VIC 3238

Stevenson's Falls The walking track, which has recently been re-opened, begins at the campground and meanders along the edge of the Gellibrand River to the day visitor area. From here the walking track crosses the river and heads through the stands of Douglas Fir Trees. It then heads down to the edge of the river into indigenous riparian vegetation where you can hear the distant roar of the falls. The walking track ends at a newly constructed viewing platform at the base of Stevenson's Falls.

There is a short, easy walk from the day visitors area to the falls. At the end of the walk there is a viewing platform for people wanting a better view of the falls.

The road in is easy and in good weather suitable for all vehicles, however it does narrow so care should be taken when proceeding around bends. In wetter weather I recommend that All wheel drive vehicles be used as there are portions of the track that can be very slippery.

The park is located in an area renowned for its diversity of migratory wader birds and includes a number of sites listed under a number of treaties to protect migratory bird habitat including International Convention on Wetlands of International Importance (the Ramsar Convention). The high diversity of marine life around the mouth of Port Phillip is due to the wide range of habitats in the area and its central Victorian location. The area marks the end of the range for some animals and plants that prefer the cold waters of western Victoria, but it also supports warmth-loving species from eastern Australia that can survive in the bay's relatively calm, shallow waters.

Five Oaks Vineyard

60 Aitken Road, Seville VIC 3139

Eighty-five year old oaks and towering cypresses sentinel outside this comfortable, welcoming winery set in the southern Yarra Valley hill country. A visit here is like a tonic of fresh clean air, beautiful natural surroundings, and a memorable range of Cabernet based red wines provide good medicine for the visitor.  It’s a labour of love for Judy and Wally Zuk whose connections with Canada are reflected in the architecture of the place and the easy smiles of the hosts. RALPH KYTE-POWELL “Park your car under one of the 75 year old oaks that gave this estate its name, and drink in the fresh air of the lovely Yarra Valley hill country. Five Oaks estate has a modest and comfortable cellar door for tasting the wines, and for enjoying the relaxed hospitality of the Zuk family. The Zuks originally come from Canada, and there is an almost North American feel in the buildings and spreading trees that lead to the vineyard. The Cabernet-based reds are particularly worth trying here”.
