Sheoak Falls, Victoria

Sheoak Falls is seven-kilometre from Lorne on Great Ocean Road on the way to Apollo Bay. These falls are 15-20 minute walk from the car-park but well worth the effort to get there.

Walking track which one point climbs to a boardwalk with a bench seat offering ocean views. As you continue the walk you get a lovey view of the Great Ocean Road. You totally immerse yourself in nature. A gorgeous place to sit reflect and listen to the cascading water, and sounds of the bush. Untroubled and serene this is a lovely part of the Otway Ranges.

The walk to the falls is easy and you arrive to find the water cascading into a deep pool surrounded by plants and ferns. It is quite a peaceful area. As you near the waterfall the path heads in two directions. Down to the falls, or continue up along the path to go to the swallow caves. We crossed part of the river by walking on exposed rocks and proceeded around another lookout

Depending on your pace or the amount of photos you take, you can easily spend 1-1.5 hours at the Falls. There are other trails to walk but we chose to do just these two which were easy for the kids as well our 5 and 9 years old had no problem. They enjoyed the flora and fauna. We saw small lizards sunning themselves on the walk in.

There is a warning advising that this section of walk should not be attempted when water levels are high – so please research with the relevant websites and or tourist centres prior to heading out. For more detail shots please check out our Photography page 🙂
