Waterfall
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.

  • We visited June and the falls were flowing well. Really nice falls and the top is a short easy walk. Then you can walk down lots of stairs to the bottom which was also very worthwhile,. We did it with...  more »
  • Haven't been for over 20 years good to visit again. Well worth the walk and feeling like you're going to die coming back up  more »
  • A place worth seeing. Lots of tall trees. Lots of steps but worth the time and effort to get right down to the bottom of the falls.  more »

  • 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.
  • A great waterfall well worth a visit. A fair way down so be ready for the way back up but steps are in good order so most will be able to get down to the falls. Can also get out to the falls if you climb on some rocks.
  • Visited this place in December and it was just really beautiful trip to go. We got advice from Tourism centre from petrol station, and it was really worth of going. Trek is not too hard and long, so it is pretty easy for kids as well. We loved the fact, that even during holiday time this place was not over crowded and we could take our time and enjoy this beautiful place. Definitely recommended to visit. Bring a repellent with you though if you know that you get easily attacked by mozzies. :)
  • Long drive up outta town, short hike from the parking lot. They have a very close upper viewpoint and further down they have access to the bottom of the falls. The stairs are steeeep. So easy on the way down and killer on the way up. Worth the view.
  • Popular and busy falls. Easy access to the car park close to the falls then a short walk to the look-outs or scramble over the rocks for a closer view.
