Explore Hopetoun Falls on the Great Ocean Road, Australia

Hopetoun Falls - Search Nearby - Added by Alyssa + Hannah ODYSEA

Located between Apollo Bay and the 12 Apostles in Beech Forest, hidden behind a dense array of ferns, is a temperate rainforest and breathtaking waterfalls

Hopetoun Falls has around 200 stairs descending into the lush rainforest to reach Hopetoun Falls, it may seem like a daunting idea and one that could also be rough on the old’ knees. 

It is worth the struggle though just so you can witness this 30 metre fall of ice-cold water into the Aire River. 

Don’t forget to bring your bathers as a dip into the icey water might be just what you need following all those stairs!

Cold and quite dry but still pretty. Very quiet which was great
