“worth seeing”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Lovely spot, but be aware that the trek down to the bottom is bad enough, but the trek up is harrowing. Don't attempt unless you are very fit.

Well, is nice to see on the way great ocean road. Not huge, but natural fall after all, walk down to see from bottom is much nicer, very easy to find on Erskine road and follow the signs.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

The falls is beautiful from the top and the bottom. A short drive from Lorne and a great activity for the kids. The bush smells and native flora were just what we were in need of as city dwellers. A must if you visit the Great Ocean Road.

Absolutely worth the walk down all those stairs, and back up of course. Very damp, so watch your step.

“Fine weather hiking”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

If you like to have a long walk (2-3 hours one way) from Lorne to Erskine falls then this a musty see. It cries crosses the river several times. This walk is not for beginners, but if you are fit then it will be easy. The best time to do this is the dry season, the rocks can get slippery. Recommended to use good hiking shoes and enough water, or lunch for a rewarding picnic at Erskine Falls. During dry season there will be only dripping or no water at the falls. During rainy days it will be a wonderful site but a bit dangerous for the long walk. If you are hiking back to Lorne make sure to have enough time to come back, the return walk will be 3-4 hours depending on your stamina.
