The Hopkins falls are the largest falls on the Hopkins River and are accessed by sealed road, 15 minutes northeast of Warrnambool. Water plunges 12 metres over the dark basalt rocks, leaving mist trailing in the wind when volumes of water are at their peak in the winter months.
The Hopkins River is an important waterway for eels and during the winter migration period, juvenile eels (elvers) can sometimes be viewed jumping up the rocky ledges of the falls. Visitors to the reserve can enjoy the picnic facilities and view the falls from lookouts accessed from the carpark.
