The Hike - With our short trip to Daylesford coming to an end and a lovely trip to Mount Franklin already, the last place I wanted to visit was Sailors Falls. Being summer I wasn't sure if it would be worth viewing but I checked the hashtags on Instagram (a great method to get recent conditions of a place) and it showed a little trickle of water still at the falls. After a lovely breakfast at Cliffy's, we took the short drive south of Daylesford and were soon at the car park for Sailors Falls. Admittedly I wasn't expecting much from this hike because I'd driven past and seen the signs for it several times and from the road it doesn't look like anything special. The area around it is dry grasses and farmland so I expected a dry valley full of grass and tall eucalyptus trees.
