About the listing
Hopkins Falls are the largest falls on the Hopkins River and are accessed by a sealed road 15 minutes north-east of Warrnambool. They are simply spectacular during winter when water plunges 12 metres over the dark basalt rocks, leaving mist trailing in the wind.
Picnic facilities and amazing views make the Hopkins Falls Reserve an ideal spot to relax and unwind, with lookouts in the carpark ensuring you don’t miss a piece of the view. Keep a look out for juvenile eels (elvers), which can sometimes be seen jumping up the rocky ledges of the falls. The Hopkins River is an important waterway for eels during the winter migration period.
