As the weather cleared and the sun came out after a few average days with scattered rain we headed out for a short daywalk into the Yarra State Forest. Our destination was La La Falls.
La La Falls was named after past landowner Leila Ward, whose guesthouse, ‘La La’ (meaning Welcome Welcome), was located in the area. This picturesque 3.2km return hike takes you through tall mountain ash forest and lush ferny undergrowth with the gentle sound of Four Mile Creek flowing beside you all the way to the falls. Distance to Melbourne city 92km, the closest town is Warburton.
The trail is compacted gravel and easy to follow and suitable for all fitness levels though there are a few steep sections that can get slippery so take care.
La La Falls is a lovely short hike through some beautiful forest, I recommend it for anyone after a nice easy walk fit for the whole family.
Take care, Mat
