Beautiful walk in The Otways, near Lorne not Geelong.

This is a beautiful walk located not far from Lorne on the surf coast. Winter and autumn is the best time to see the falls as they can dry up in summer.
From Phantom Falls you can continue to walk via The canyon to Sheoak picnic area. More detailed maps available from the Lorne Visitors centre.

Stunning waterfall well worth the trip. Upper Kalimantan closed as of 20-Jul-18. Lower falls an easy 2 hour return trip

Easy walk and a top spot to view the beautiful coastline and light house.

the trail is 8 km ans not 13 (mistake sorry)

Completed track ( 104 km) in 6 days and 5 nights. The GOW signs and numbers are useful. Mobile signal was not too bad and in all camping sides water tanks were full and well conserved. I saw a lot animals and all scenery was fantastic. I had a negative experience between Blanket Bay to Aire River as I stopped to buy a cold drink at lighthouse shop but the shop attendant was impolite toward me. Also after Johanna’s beach camping side there are few gates that must be kept locked, after last gate please be careful as there are a few wild kangaroos in the area. Please note that at this part of the track I was chased away by a male kangaroo who wanted kick and scratch me. I ended up running and strategically jumping out of lane seeking a place to hide in the bush until big fella moved away. I really enjoyed the last leg of the track, I highly recommend to stop at small village close to Riverlock. At this village there is a great a cafe shop and this may be an opportunity to have a cup of latte so you can reach twelve apostles fully charged. Have fun!
