The falls are a short drive from Lorne and well worth the visit. From the car park you take some 300 easy steps down to the bottom, where a wooden platform gives a view of the waterfall. If there's been rain, you'll have a better...More

The spectacular Erskine Falls can be viewed from viewing platforms looking towards the top of the falls and also at the base of the falls. For the more adventurous ones, you can clamber over the rocks at the base of the falls to get a...More

Located just 8 kilometers out of Lorne. This waterfall is well worth go to see. Road takes you to within 80 meters of the top of the falls. A further 200 meters takes you to the bottom of the falls. Very beautiful and the valley...More

Wonderful place to stop and view a hidden gem. The initial viewing platform for the falls is only a few meters from the car park, so easy to get to for the elderly etc. If you feel more adventurous head down the well made stairs...More
