very fun completed whole thing some bits are challenging tho

Great track, stunning views. I would say that the track is rather easy than moderate. It took 2 hours to complete, but we did lots of stops to take photos. Definitely recommend

We had a gorgeous 30 degree day for this walk. We went inland first due to the tide times so that we had no tide issues doing the beach walk to finish. Deviated accidentally from the set track listed but there were no dramas with that. An absolutely gorgeous walk that has you walking through native bushland with the amazing coastline as the back drop. So many picture opportunities! The final leg of the journey with the walk along the beach has you venturing alongside gorgeous rock formations. Point to note that there is a nudist beach along the beach walk back... a little surprise for us!

Beautiful views and good mix of beach / bush walking. But make sure it’s low tide. Really great

A lovely rainforest walk next to a running brook on a beautiful Victorian spring day. Walked this with a non-hiker. There are two very steep sections. The non-hiker didn’t go the final 100m down to the falls as the ascent back up was so steep, so they missed the best bit of the walk. Very enjoyable none-the-less.

Lots of variety packed into 11km, a long walk on the beach, rock scrambles, lots of climbs up and down rolling sandhills with scrubby gums, wattle, grass trees and in spring lots of tiny paper daisies. Many opportunities to glimpse the ocean once you turn inland. Well marked. Bonus for indigenous waymakers and interpretation.

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.

One of the Must-Do locations in Australia .. Easy access .. pity the surf was up the two days we were there as I would have loved to have tracked down onto the sand .. no photo's do this place justice.

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.

Totally worth the stop, albeit painfully touristy. If you go during summertime, prepare for the most annoying and plentiful flies you've ever experienced in your life. People were even wearing netting around their heads like a beekeeper. But you kinda forget all that once you (squeeze your way through the crowd and find a free spot on the railing to) see the view.

It's a graet spot, just ruined by being a tourist stop off point.
