This is a view in May 2021 of the Wannon River just before it cascades over the Wannon Falls.
There are two stunning waterfalls on the Wannon River. This stream runs west of Hamilton in the Southern Grampians Shire of Victoria’s Western District. The famous Swiss-born artist Abraham-Louis Buvelot painted the Wannon Falls in 1872. In his masterpiece, there is a raging deluge of water. By comparison, the fall I saw in early May 2021 was a modest single stream.
The waterfall cascades from a small river with a rocky bed into a huge chasm filled with enormous boulders and a small lake. What geological event shaped this otherwise flat landscape?
