Keppell Lookout and Steavenson Falls is a 15.5km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Marysville Reserve Victoria. The hike should take approximately 5hrs to complete.


Keppell Lookout and Steavenson Falls commences at Kings Road Carpark, Marysville and climbs up through stringybark and mountain ash forest to four of Marysville’s best lookouts for spectacular views across Marysville, the Cathedral Range State Park and Steavenson Falls. You will then make your way back via the Upper and Lower Steavenson Falls Lookouts.

The most challenging trail in the area, the Keppel Lookout trail is fairly uneven and steep in places.

Getting there

As you near Marysville via Marysville road, turn right into Old Melbourne Road and then into Kings Road (right into Kings road if coming from Melbourne). Cross over Pack Road and the car park is about 150 metres on your right.

  1. We did this trail last weekend. Just to point out that possibly part of the trail (close to Steavenson falls) may not be dog friendly as we saw a sign saying no dogs. Also we parked in a different place than these instructions which was more directly linked to this walk.
