Watch water cascade over a 30 m (98 ft) drop, one of the highest drops in the Otways at Erskine Falls. Climb the stone and timber steps to access two viewing platforms. From here, you can photograph the falls from the front. The path to the lower platform has around 300 steps straight up from the base of the falls; there are rest areas along the way.

    After short directions on a quite steep road, you will reach the parking lot. You can see the waterfall from the top of a view, it's nice but to go down the stairs and down to take pictures.

    A nice drive up! And a nice walk to see the falls! We went in the middle of winter and it's still fun! Just be careful if it has been raining.

    Great place to walk. Lovely view. Trees provide lots of shade, but be prepared for stairs.

    Such an amazing place. The walk from the car park takes about 30-40 minutes return. The way up can be a bit difficult but worth it. The waterfall is very beautiful and enjoyable to watch.

    Splendid memorable Otway Rainforest waterfall. Easy to get to and plenty to look at. Even though path down is very steep, it's a well kept paved path with railings, a luscious walk and beautiful views. There is even fish to see in the pool downstream from the fall.
