Victoria Falls and Anglers Rest

Victoria Falls, Alpine Area, Victoria
The water flow from the alpine areas is fed from the high inaccessible mountains near the borders of New South Wales and Victoria. This stepped fall is only accessible because of a failed hydro scheme a century ago.

Here the watershed divides in radical directions, a valley here might send its waters into East Gippsland, while the valley there might send it into the northern flowing system that makes up the Mitta Mitta.

Here the northerly rivers cut canyons through the mountains, a keep fast running rapids bubbling through the silent hills.

The rivers here have become a magnet for kayaks - with dozens of named challenges.
