Getting There: From the Murray Valley Highway, turn north into Murray River Road (not far past Tallangatta). Just as you enter the town of Granya there is a road to the left called Webbs Lane (I think it was also marked with a sign to Cottontree Creek). On Webbs Lane there is an unclear intersection (not marked on the map in the Park Note), where you need to head to the right.

Comments: Since I was in the area, I decided to have a go at the (11.5km return) Georges Walking Track but once I got beyond Granya Falls I realised it wasn’t going to be the type of walk I was looking for. There were red markers on the trees going up the hill from the Falls but I lost them (and the track) a few times so I turned back, having realised that it wasn’t a walk I should be attempting with my lack of experience and no company (not to mention no compass or even a decent map).

Since I at least made it to Granya Falls unscathed, I thought I’d post this short walk here anyway (if only as a record that I’ve done it). I don’t want to post any walks I haven’t actually completed myself so I’ll let someone else provide full information for the Georges Walking Track.
The walk is from the Cottontree Creek picnic/camping area which will be easy to find with the maps in the Park Notes. Once in the picnic/camping area, follow the 4WD track up the hill and veer right, through a gate (rather than heading left to the toilets). The track is easy from here.

When I got to the falls I could see only a trickle of water flowing down a couple of the huge boulders but could hear that there was a decent flow in amongst them. However, the surroundings and the view from the falls were fantastic and so different from all of the places I’ve visited closer to Melbourne.
