Leave Lemonthyme Lodge at Moina along a four wheel drive track, past the managers residence and uphill. After 40 minutes it levels out and, at the start of the descent, there is a spur for the steep direct route to Champagne Falls. Return part of the way back and follow the sign to Bridal Veil Falls. Lemonthyme Lodge asks you to register your walk with them.
Bridal Veil, Champagne and No Name Falls
All three falls are on one 2.5-hour return walk from Lemonthyme Lodge at Moina, on the way to Cradle Mountain. The Bridal Veil Falls cascade 20 metres into Bulls Creek. In full flow they form a rectangular curtain of water and at lower flow form a series of vertical columnar strands draping the underlying rock wall. The walk leaves Lemonthyme Lodge and at first follows a four-wheel-drive track past the manager’s residence, uphill. After about 40 minutes the walk levels out then descends. As the descent begins, there is a spur to Champagne falls. Continue past this to get to Bridal Veil Falls – the track loops around to reconnect to the Champagne falls anyway. Staff at Lemonthyme Lodge ask that you register your walk with them.
