Wannon Falls and Shearing Shed

The Wannon Falls interrupting the flow of the Wannon river with a thirty metre vertical precipice of hardened basalt lava above a deep pool offer spectacular views, interpretative signage and a cantilevered viewing platform. Hot summer months and prolongued drought stopped the flow of the river over the falls in 2009. The nearby township of Redruth, renamed to Wannon in 1908, was first settled in 1908. The little community consisted of two schools, two hotels, a store, four saw mills and a ferry crossing for the river. The township is best known for the Nigretta and Wannon waterfalls.
