Upgrades have commenced on the Erskine Falls walking track, lookout and carpark. During the upgrades there will be minimal impacts to visitors while the construction team are working on site,  however the walking track to the lower lookout will close for a short time while it is replaced. We expect work will be completed in August/September, depending on on-ground works and weather conditions.

Please continue to check Great Otway National Park page before your visit to stay up to date with any temporary closures.

During construction, it’s important that visitors follow the direction of signs and stay out of any fenced or restricted areas. 

The Project and Funding 

The carpark and walking track to the falls are being upgraded, with new fencing and handrails. Stairs will be replaced on the existing access path to the base of the falls. A new lookout platform at the base of falls will allow people to safely enjoy this spectacular fern gully and views of the waterfall, while protecting the sensitive vegetation. Two bridges along Lemonade Creek will also be repaired with the walking track remaining closed until works are completed. 

This project has been funded $720,400 from Victoria’s Great Outdoors.  Victoria’s Great Outdoors is $106.6 million investment by the Victorian Government into better campgrounds, walking trails, 4WD tracks and visitor facilities across Victoria’s parks and state forests.  
Conditions in parks can change quickly. Please always check Parks Victoria’s website www.parks.vic.gov.au and the change of conditions and closures page before visiting parks.
