Hopkins Falls (near Warrnambool)

We visited Warrnambool about 15 years ago with our boys for a holiday as well as some EzeScan work for the local Council & Wannon Water so decided to skip Warrnambool this time but just had to go back to Hopkins Falls after visiting it with our boys all those years ago (maplink).

The falls are about 90 meters wide but no that tall. This is a lovely spot and well maintained with plenty of information about the short-finned eels which travel from the Hopkins River all the way to the Coral Sea, near Vanuatu, to mate every year.

On the way back to Port Fairy we looked for and found a piece of artwork created by a Warrnambool local, which is a brilliant piece of wall art depicting a wombat coming out of the wall of a railway bridge. There is a very funny story about this artwork available on YouTube and is worth a look. Check it out below…
