Triplet Falls Circuit is a 1.8km, grade 2 Circuit hike located in Great Otway National Park Victoria. The hike should take approximately 1hrs to complete.


The Triplet Falls Circuit is a short but very pretty walk, and the falls are arguably the most spectacular falls in the Great Otway National Park. The walk starts at the carpark and can be walked in either direction, but it is recommended to take the path to the left at the beginning. The walk takes you through some really beautiful ancient forests with some very large Mountain Ash trees. You will see the lower cascades shortly before the main falls. After taking time to view the falls return to the carpark.

Getting there

From Melbourne take the M1 towards Geelong, then A1, take the C155 via Gellibrand. Then take Phillips Track to the signposted Falls Carpark.


The walk can be taken in either direction, but is suggested to take the clockwise route.
