0.5 Miles Round Trip - Out-and-Back Trail

Beauchamp Falls Walking Track - Search Nearby - Added by Alyssa + Hannah ODYSEA

The iconic Great Ocean Road isn’t all just windy roads and rocks that tower high out of the water, it’s also the home of a temperate rainforest and breathtaking waterfalls hidden in the hills.

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

Containing a high biodiversity and homing many of Australia’s unique flora and fauna, the Otways National Park.

Beauchamp Falls offers free dog friendly camping making it a great stopover between Apollo Bay and the 12 Apostles on your Great Ocean Road trip. It features a large camping area and drop toilets. 


Just remember, bring all your food and water and take ALL your rubbish with you when you leave. 

The 30 minute walk to the falls has a whole lot less steps than it’s neighbour Hopetoun Falls. The walk leads you through a dense canopy of huge myrtle beech, blackwood and thick ferns and to a plummeting 20mtr drop of gushing water. These enormous trees wear their history deep into their bark and are covered in a thick layer of moss. They really are quite the site and very different to anything you’ll witness in a tropical rainforest. Bring your swimwear if you can brave the icy water to cool off after the short hike.

The road between here and Port Campbell is winding and sickly, so camping in a lush rainforest is a great way to break up the drive.
