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.

  • What an amazing waterfalls this is. You can enjoy the beauty two ways down. First walk is about 50m from the car park and the one further down is about 200m which is fantastic to do as you get to walk further up to the waterfalls climbing rocks etc which the kids will absolutely love doing. However here is the warning..be prepared for the walk back up which is exhaustive but worth it. The drive is fantastic too. Overall a great experience
  • Never saw a waterfall this beautiful and in one the most unexpected places deep down below. A good set of stairs going down to showcase you one of the hidden treasures of Victoria. Hardly a 2 hours drive from Melbourne, this fall will definitely make you 'fall' in love with it at the first sight.
