Cyathea Falls is a 2km, grade 1 Circuit hike located in Tarra Bulga National Park Victoria. The hike should take approximately 1hrs to complete.


The Cyathea Falls circuit is a lovely short walk through the primeval forest of Tarra Bulga to the Cyathea Falls. Tarra Bulga contains arguably the best primeval forest in Victoria, and at least is well worth a visit. Even though this walk is short it is well worth doing.

Start at the carpark and follow the trail. After a couple of hundred metres you will come to the junction of the West and East Walk. You can take either as they loop back together. The GPX file follows the West Walk. Shortly after 1km you will come to the falls. Once you have admired these return via the East Walk (or West if you came via East Walk). The car park is roughly 1km back.

Getting there

From Melbourne, head to Traralgon via the Monash Freeway (M1). From Traralgon, take the Traralgon Creek Rd (C483) south for roughly 40km. The road becomes Grand Ridge Rd. The last 7km is a winding descent down to the Tarra Valley car park. Take care on this section as it is very narrow and visibility around corners is poor.


  • Bring your camera.
