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. A visit to Erskine Falls represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Lorne trip itinerary planner to plot your vacation.

  • Top lookout is easy to get to. Bottom lookout is easy to go down to but lots of steps to get back up! Beautiful mossy trees. Would probably be slippery in the wet weather. Nice creek that kids had...

  • Easy drive to the falls from Lorne, about 9klms, then easy 5min walk to top viewing area, bottom viewing area was accessed by close to 200 steps down, magnificent view of the falls from there but...

  • This is a beautiful place. Make the stop. The drive can be interesting, depending on where you come from, but any decent car can do it. There are two viewing spots. The top is easy, very. The signs imply that the bottom viewing platform is not for everyone. That said, old and tired and broken as I am, we made the trip down and back up again (slowly). It was worth every slight muscle ache.
  • The falls have two viewing areas; the view from the top of the falls (an easier walk) and the view from the base. A really good workout as there are many stairs. Unfortunately, no toilets near the car park, so be prepared for that.
