Mount Buffalo > Eurobin Falls | The Gorge Precinct | National Park Story | Torpedo Rock

The popular Ladies Bath and Eurobin Falls is one of the first places you can stop at as you make your way up Mount Buffalo. This was a popular stop-off in the early 20th century, as travellers could stop here to cool off on their way to the Mount Buffalo chalet. At that time, men and women would separate, with the women enjoying Ladies Bath enjoying the refreshing waters of Crystal Brook.

These falls are a series of broad cascades that spill over large granite rock slabs.

Whilst the waterfall may not look very big, this creek has formed the huge chasm that you can see up at the top of Eurobin Falls. The Eurobin Falls is a great place for a picnic and to escape the summer heat of the Ovens and Buckland valleys.

Torpedo rock is another peculiar feature of rock formation. Notice the rounded form and its well balanced position on the rock beneath it and also the smooth rounded forms of all the surface rocks in this locality. It looks like the bed of a dry-weather stream.
