La La Falls

Our first morning adventure on our Warburton sojourn was La La Falls, also known as the Bridal Veil Falls, named after past landowner Leila Ward, whose guesthouse – 'La La', which appropriately means ‘Welcome Welcome’ in the local indigenous language – was located in the area.

The walking track to the falls follow beside the Four Mile Creek, winds its way under a thick, lush forest canopy over a vibrant under story of ferns and native trees.

The walk up to the falls was absolutely enchanting, a world of wonder and intrigue. The scent of Melaleuca fragrant leaves and Christmas Bush filled the air together with white gums as we ascended, with the songs of birds all around us. The trail traverses the creek over several hand built stone bridges, where you get a sense of the history of this track, and my imagination conjures up images of ladies walking in their 1880a fashion of frilly dresses and heels up to the base  of the falls - sharing  my same wonderment for the surroundings.

As we climbed closer to the falls the distant sound of the water grew closer,  the smell of dampness and aromatic plants and trees around us raised our senses to the surroundings. There is nothing like being in a forest to calm your state of mind.
