Hopetoun Falls

Soak up the spray as the Hopetoun Falls plummet 30 metres into the Aire River in the Great Otway National Park. Take in the view from the upper platform, or descend some 200 stairs leading through glades of tree ferns to the base of the falls. The platform here has a bench perfect for taking in the views and resting the knees.

To get to the platforms, follow the path from the car park. The upper platform is an easy 20-metre walk from the car park. The lower platform is a one-kilometre return trip – allow half an hour.
