2. Don’t miss the breathtaking picturesque waterfalls
The Great Ocean Road is brimming with waterfalls.
Lower Kalimna Falls in Lorne is a bit of a hidden gem, just off the walking tracks. There are actually two falls – a big one at the top and another smaller one further down.
Rainforests and ferns surround both waterfalls, making for some beautiful photo opportunities.
Hopetoun Falls in Otways is a scenic part of the Great Ocean Road and arguably the most picturesque waterfall in Victoria.
A viewing platform offers fantastic views of the falls and the surrounding coastal scenery. To access the base of Hopetoun Falls involves walking 500 meters down steep stairs – you’ll definitely want to wear sturdy walking shoes!
Other notable falls include the Erskine Falls in Lorne and the Beauchamp Falls in Otways.
