Hopetoun Falls, Great Otway National Park, VIC, Australia

The much painted and photographed Hopetoun Falls are off the Aire Valley Road, near Beech Forest in the Otway National Park. It is close to both Beauchamp Falls and Triplet Falls so waterfall lovers will have a field day visiting them all. The route to the falls is pretty straight forward and well signed. You can hear the roar of the falls pounding into the Aire River as you arrive in the car park, there is also a view from here. There is a steep path, passing through a glade of tree ferns, to the foot of the falls. Allow about 45 minutes for the 1km return walk.

I was really lucky to shoot this falls as in a few moments the sky cleared and harsh sunlight ruined soft contrast of the rainforest.

PS. Unfortunately the road to the Beauchamp Falls was closed for pubic access at that time so I do not have a photo of it yet.
