Triplet Falls, Beech Forest

4.4
#35 of 252 in Nature in Victoria
The Triplet Falls are waterfalls located in the Great Otway National Park of Victoria, in eastern Australia. The falls are fed by the Young Creek and as the name suggests there are three falls that cascade over a lush rainforest to the floor of the valley. The three streams normally flow when there has been significant rain upstream, so it is not uncommon to see only one or two streams flowing.

  • A moderate trek on steepish stairs, metal board walks (slippery when wet!) and dirt path to find three lovely cascading waterfalls. Pretty ferns, foliage and forest, well maintained 2km return loop tr...  more »
  • Lots of stairs but worth the walk even though view of falls at each platform is obscured by trees. There are 3 platforms to view from. The tree ferns down the bottom we’re thick.  more »
  • Although it is a relatively short walk there are some steep sections. The walk is worth it- pristine rainforest and spectacular falls.  more »

  • Perfect little hike through a beautiful rainforest. There is a path all the way around made out of steel, so you definitely can’t get lost. Next to the first look-out platform there is a “path” going down to the waterfall but this one is more for the advanced hiker and climber - prepare to get your hands a bit dirty ;). But when you’re down, you can see the waterfall from beneath and it’s stunning! Be careful on the slippery rocks.
  • A quiet walk through the bush up and down steps to the valley floor there to be surrounded by tree fern and see the Mountain Ash towering above. Apart from the falls, which can be variable depending on weather, the journey was worth while. Although be mindful of the terrain and your mobility i
  • Very beautiful waterfall over several hundred metres vertically and horizontally. There are public toilets and a carpark. The site is definitely not accessible as there are loads of stairs. You can follow the long walk by walking right down into the valley and back up to the falls and then up the side of the falls or you can turn right at the first junction and take a much shorter path to see the falls going downwards only as far as you want to.
  • The walk goes through deep forest - lush ferns and mossy trunks amongst towering redwoods. The waterfall is set of 3 cascading tiers (hence triplet, I believe) - the lookout is largely obstructed by branches, and the climb down to the waterfall itself is via a muddy embankment and crisscrossing roots; only for the nimble. My photos provided are for the lower regions only (my kids had enough climbing at that point).
  • Long walk. Moderate fitness required. Stairs/hills/slopes. Beautiful forestry. Excellent variety of mushrooms and bug life. View of waterfalls not too flash.
