Victoria Falls


After the art gallery at Blackheath we went for a drive out along Victoria Falls road at the end of which is Victoria Falls lookout. This is in fact a misnomer because you can't see the falls from the lookout, just an expansive view over the Grose Valley. It's apparently a walk down a 'steep grade' to get to anything like a view of the falls which are no doubt not much more than a trickle. I don't know because anyone who has been following this blog for long will know that 'steep grade' is not something that I indulge in

Words to walk with:
Penned by David Livingstone on seeing the magnificent Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River in Africa.
"No one can imagine the beauty of the view from anything witnessed in England. It had never been seen before by European eyes; but scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight."

You could say the same of the beautiful Grose Valley.
