Description

Surrounded by creek line grassy woodland, this shallow gorge is part of Seven Creeks Wildlife Reserve. At the bottom are twin waterfalls roughly 20 metres apart. Immediately upstream from these are granite chutes that channel water at a great pace. Further upstream again are large boulder tumbles that create a turbulent spectacle during high water and exertion demanding rock hopping when low. In between all this activity, quiet pools with picturesque backdrops offer spaces for contemplation and reflection. Whether as churning white water or a gently flowing stream, this spot is gorgeous and has something for everyone.

The Gooram Falls Day Visitor Area where this walk begins and ends is located about 20km south of the town of Euroa.

The track itself is a return 1.9km walk between the upper and lower car parks. Offshoots take you to the granite creek bed. The tracks have only had minor works done over the years. It can be rough and steep in places. Much of the shallow gorge is exposed rock that can be both steep and slippery. Take care.

Gooram Falls is part of a Seven Creeks protected native fish spawning reach between Polly McQuinns and Gall's Gap. Precious threatened species live and breed here. Please be mindful to avoid damage to or contamination of this fragile ecosystem.

This site makes for enjoyment of a variety of recreational pastimes such as bushwalking and swimming. Bird watchers can seek out 15 species or more. Photographers and artists alike will revel in subjects aplenty, and on a clear day, brilliant light.

Points of Interest

1. Gooram Falls Day Picnic Area

There is ample room for car parking. A picnic table and BBQ fire pits are also provided. The track begins here.

2. The granite creek bed

Between the twin falls and the upper car park lies an extensive granite creek bed with plenty of room for exploring, investigating and water play.

3. Quiet places

A tumble of boulders fill the creek below the upper car park. Further downstream, quiet, pretty places for exploration or reflection can be found.

4. The chute

Above the falls, water has carved a chute that can funnel fast flowing water any time of year. Enjoy the view at a safe distance.

5. The upper falls in summer.

Volumes may vary, but all year round water charges down this rock face.

6. The upper falls in winter.

Water flows can very dramatically. Take care.

7. The lower falls

Smaller in height, but greater in width, the lower falls fill a wide bend in the creek popular for swimming. Remember, no two visits will be the same. Snags, holes and turbulence may be present.

8. Lower car park and track entry

The lower entry car park can get quite boggy if it has been wet. There are no waterfalls here. The upper car park is recommended for longer visits.

9. Public toilets

Long drop toilets are sited at the lower car park. No potable water is available.
