Victorian Waterfalls

Hopetoun Falls, Triplet Falls, Beauchamp Falls, Erskine Falls, Lady Bath Falls and MacKenzie Falls , Victoria, Australia


A small collection of the most beautiful waterfalls in Victoria, Australia. These falls are among top tourist destinations. The list includes Hopetoun Falls, Triplet Falls, Beauchamp Falls and Erskine Falls in Great Otway National Park, Lady Bath Falls in Mt Buffalo and MacKenzie Falls in Grampians National Park.

The MacKenzie Falls in Grampians National Park is one of the largest and most spectacular waterfalls in Victoria. Flowing year round, the falls sees water cascade over huge cliffs into a deep pool, sending fine sprays of rainbow mist high into the air above a stunning gorge. To see the falls, take the easy, one-kilometre path to the viewing platform at the Bluff (wheelchair accessible), or the steep trail to the base of the falls (30 minutes one way).

The Hopetoun Falls is a waterfall across the Aire River that is located in The Otways region of Victoria, Australia. The falls are located approximately 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) south of the locality of Beech Forest at an elevation of 314 metres (1,030 ft) above sea level and range between 45-49 metres (148-161 ft) in height. Hopetoun Falls adjacent to the Apollo Bay - Beech Forest Road about 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) south of the Beauchamp Falls turnoff and roughly 20 kilometres (12 mi) northwest of the coastal town of Apollo Bay.

The Triplet Falls are waterfalls located in the Great Otway National Park of Victoria, in eastern Australia. The falls are fed by the Young Creek and as the name suggests there are three falls that cascade over a lush rainforest to the floor of the valley. The three streams normally flow when there has been significant rain upstream, so it is not uncommon to see only one or two streams flowing.

The Beauchamp Falls is one of several waterfalls in close vicinity to each other, and along the same approach route to Hopetoun Falls. It is relatively easy to get to, and is definitely worth the visit. It is one of the many iconic waterfalls of the Otways which is best viewed on an overcast day, especially after there have a few passing showers in the area.

The Erskine Falls is one of the most popular waterfalls in the Otways, plunges 30 metres into the lush tree-fern gully of the Erskine River. Feel the fine mist from the cascading water as you take in the views from one of two lookouts. The upper lookout is an easy five-minute walk from the car park. The lower lookout is a more strenuous walk, down some 240 steps to the base of the falls. The reward? A view of one of the highest drops in the region. Erskine Falls is a nine-kilometre drive from Lorne. For enthusiastic walkers, the 7.5-kilometre Erskine River Track leads from the falls to Lorne along the river, passing Straw Falls and Splitter Falls.
