YARRA RIVER VISTA

Dights Falls is located in Melbourne, Victoria just downstream of the junction of the Yarra River with Merri Creek, about 2 km east of the City. At this point the river narrows and is constricted between 800,000 year old volcanic, basaltic lava flow and a much older steep, Silurian, sedimentary spur. It's hard to believe that this wonderful nature reserve is situated in the midst of a thriving metropolis of nearly 4.5 million people.

One never tires of looking at such beautiful vistas, especially if one finds the time to escape from the hustle and bustle of the City only a short distance away!
