A beautiful trail meanders its way through a varied landscape that includes the typical Australian bush, grasslands, fern gullies, she-oak forests, banksias, bracken, cliff edges – and all within a circuit which is only 1 km in length.
Approximately midway, a lookout embraces a steep gorge that literally falls away beneath you. The dramatic landscape presents a trickling waterfall which is barely visible through the dense vegetation, as it cascades down the ravine. A truly beautiful, peaceful and natural Australian scene. The waterfall apparently procured its name from Mr John King, the owner of the land between the years 1924 to 1929 . . .
Signage along the way states:
” . . . Port Phillip Bay was formed when the land sank between fault lines. King Falls are located on one these, the Selwyn Fault.
As water flowed from the Arthurs Seat ridge to the Bay, it cut through the softer layers of soil and rock to expose hard granite. This granite is now the face of Kings Falls . . . “
