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.

Erskine Falls Reviews
Zeer mooie waterval. Er is een punt waar je de waterval van boven kan zien. En je kan helemaal naar beneden via de trappen om de waterval van onder te bewonderen. Alleen jammer dat er altijd weer mens... more »Very nice waterfall. There is a point where you can see the waterfall from above. And you can go all the way down through the stairs to admire the waterfall from underneath. Just a pity that there should always be people again to go off the paths and then for the waterfalls their pictures are going to shoot for tens of minutes.... Nice and selfish. They don't understand that we don't want to have them in the picture.
After a windy hilly road, you come to the falls, there is about an 80mtr walk down stairs to see the falls, steady flow if water. Than if you want to challenge yourself and go to base of waterfalls yo... more »
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.
