Beauchamp Falls is a 3km, grade 2 Return hike located in Great Otway National Park Victoria. The hike should take approximately 1hrs to complete.


Beauchamp Falls is a spectacular 20 metre high waterfall which is reached via a short walk through very beautiful forest with mountain ash, large myrtle beech, and blackwood. The walk is downhill most of the way to the falls, and is worth taking your time to enjoy the surrounds. The falls are viewable from a platform. Then retrace your steps back uphill to the carpark.

Getting there

Take your time and enjoy the scenery. The walk is steep at times and there are lots of steps. The stairs are slippery when wet, and are very steep. Not suitable for individuals with mobility restrictions.

One thought on “Beauchamp Falls (3km)

  1. Great little 1 hour hike to an impressive waterfall.

    A great mix of undulating terrain, which at times runs alongside the creek. Would recommend going off the beaten track a little bit if photography is more your thing. Limited in some areas due to which side of the water the track is on.

    But all in all, a nice easy trek to a gorgeous piece of the Otways.
