Two cascading waterfalls are to be found 15 minutes west of Hamilton and have inspired many artists over the years. Nigretta Falls has good viewing and fishing areas, river walks and barbeque facilities. A five minute drive away are the majestic Wannon Falls, also with excellent facilities and camping area. Continue along the Glenelg highway to Coleraine, home of the Points Arboretum, historic railway station and Glenelg Fine Chocolates.
