Waterfall Nature / Park
The Nigretta Falls, previously known as the Upper Wannon Falls, are waterfalls located in the Southern Grampians Shire, approximately west of Hamilton, Victoria, Australia. The falls are fed by the Wannon River that has its head waters in the Grampians mountains.Location and featuresThe falls tumble over many rocky outcrops creating several streams of falling water and then drop into a large pool at the base before continuing its journey to the Wannon Falls some downstream. In contrast to the single plunge of the Wannon Falls, Nigretta is a more interesting, multi-channel segmented cascade of smaller drops and bounces guided by patterns of joints in a much older (Devonian) rhyolitic volcanic rock. However, as with the Wannon Falls, the amount of water varies with the time of year - the photo shows a late winter, wet season, view. The Nigretta Scenic Reserve includes parts of the Wannon River Valley which contains representatives of the native plants of the Dundas Tablelands, listed in the reference.
Our Hamilton holiday planner makes visiting Nigretta Falls and other Hamilton attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • We visited after the high rainfall. What a spectacular sight. Great viewing platforms and easy access right from carpark to first platform. Second platform requires easy walk to top of falls and you can also walk down steep stairs to bottom of the falls.
  • Visited during high rainfall event. Absolutely spectacular! Visited Wannon Falls just prior and although they were quite spectacular Nigretta was much more spectacular. If not for the high rainfall neither would have been quite as spectacular but still worth a visit.
  • While at it also stop here it's just down the road of Willson Falls if that's how you write it. This is really nice too
  • Very cool spot. Enjoyed the option of walking around the river above the fall and watching all that water cascade down the valley
  • Great place to see some amazing scenery and the falls
