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

Hike Summary

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.

About the region

Great Otway National Park stretches from Torquay, along the world-famous Great Ocean Road and up through the Otways hinterland. Discover windswept coastlines and breathtaking waterfalls in tall mountain forests, walk the iconic Great Ocean Walk, immerse yourself in the Otway Lightstation's history, or surf some of the best breaks in Australia. Enjoy the great outdoors and explore the wonders of the Great Otway National Park. Great Otway National Park is in southern Victoria, Australia. It covers rugged coastland, beaches and the mountains of the Otway Ranges. Waterfalls dot the park, including the 3 cascades of Triplet Falls. Boardwalks lead through temperate rainforest at Maits Rest. The 1848 Cape Otway Lightstation perches on cliffs overlooking Bass Strait. Great Ocean Walk leads through the park to the Twelve Apostles rock formations.

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.
