About the Walk


Starting from Lorne Caravan Park, the walk follows the picturesque Erskine River upstream to Erskine falls then returns by the same track

The Walk in Detail

This picturesque walk alongside the river is a photographer's dream.  You may go along as far as you like and turn back at any time.  The track is in good condition.  As you get further up stream, it is necessary  to cross the river on the rocks on four occasions.  However, if you choose not to do this, you may turn around.  You will not feel cheated if that should be necessary.

As you ascend the Erskine valley, you will find huge rock slabs which form a series of cascades, view the Splitter Falls across the valley, then the Straw Falls, and finally the imposing Erskine Falls set in an amphitheatre of rock, near the Erskine Falls car park.

Return by the same track to the starting point in Lorne.

Note: the map provided shows both the Erskine Falls Return, and the Erskine Falls to Lorne walks.
