Stevensons Falls Walk

Stevensons Falls is one of the Otway region's most accessible and spectacular waterfalls. Starting from the car park, this short walk passes through a stand of large Californian redwood trees which are a remnant of a trial plantation established in the 1980s. From here, the picturesque walk crosses over the Gellibrand River and then continues alongside the river to a viewing platform at the base of the waterfalls.

This easy walk is suitable for everyone and is wheelchair accessible and pram friendly.

The site also has 2 smaller walks: the Redwoods Boardwalk, showcasing the giant Californian redwoods, and the Blue Spruce Walk which runs along the Gellibrand River.
