Steavensons Falls, Marysville

Steavensons Falls are Victoria's highest waterfall and descend 84 meteres to the bush and fern-fringed Steavensons River below. The Falls were named after John Steavenson, who first visited the site of what is now Marysville in 1862, the falls opened to tourists in 1866.

They are a popular attraction and at night are illuminated by floodlights powered by hydro-electricity created by the thundering water.

This photo was taken before the Black Saturday bushfires which decimated the area.
