Listening to a Silverband Falls is a great way to wash your daily worries away: close your eyes or lie down, and let the natural sounds permeate your mind.

The Silverband Falls are waterfalls located in the Grampians National Park, in western Victoria, Australia. Fed by Dairy Creek, the horsetail falls are characterised by a narrow band of water that tumbles over a small rock face and then disappears into a rocky base. The creek re-emerges some 50 metres (160 ft) west of the falls.

Early European visitors to the falls named it Silverband because of its narrow stream of water.

The waterfall was actually named by European settlers during the early 1800’s. As the fall resembles a narrow stream of water, it was named the Silverband Falls.

A number of wedding couples come to these falls to take pictures on the foothills of the hill ranges. Silverband Falls is also considered a mysterious waterfall as the stream of water tends to disappear on the ground and later, reappears.
