Trentham Falls is Victoria's longest single step drop at 32m. The path to the falls is signed and closed at a viewing platform above the falls.
A small abandoned Forestry Commission basalt quarry that lies about 700 m north of Trentham Falls on the eastern side of the Coliban River gorge has been the source of specimens of zeolites and carbonates. The zeolites are confined to the northern end of the quarry where as the carbonates are evenly spread throughout the quarry.
