View of Victoria Falls at Cobungra, Victoria, Australia. Victoria Falls is a small water fall on the Victoria River, a short distance from Cobungra on the Great Alpine Road. Since Australia is a fairly dry continent, the water fall is best visited in spring or after rain.
Victoria is Australia's second smallest State and covers only 3% of Australia's land area but has the second highest population of all States and Territories.
