A 1.5-hour drive from Melbourne CBD and a short descent along the bushwalking trail in Glenlyon reserve lies your new wild swimming spot. Here, Loddon River drops to the gorge below in a cascading waterfall, creating what may be the most beautiful swimming hole ever. Take it all in as you float, from the gentle rush of the falls to the scrub clinging to the high basalt columns around the sheltered gorge. Formed by volcanic eruptions 2.5 million years ago, Loddon Falls is now a reserve of tranquility, perfect for relaxing and spotting native fauna — wallabies, kangaroos and echidnas are known to make appearances. This is the true treasure of Goldfields country.
