Lorne is a beautiful area and offers some stunning hikes within the Otway Forest Park. Countless waterfalls and river crossings, forest ferns – what more could you want? Views? Yes there are some views on offer too, but in all honesty when you have waterfalls, who needs views?
This 2.8km return walk enters the valley of Sheoak Creek. It is a short walk upstream, and worth walking a little further to Swallow Cave, aptly named for the Swallows that nest there during spring.
This Sheoak Falls hiking trail is 2.8km long and will take about 1 hour to complete. You may wish to spend some time relaxing by the water at the falls.
It is best to complete this hike after recent rainfall, however if it has rained too much, the crossing of Sheoak Creek near Swallow Cave be difficult and/or impossible to pass.
