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?
Lower Kalimna Falls is a favourite among many who visit Lorne, considered one of the prettiest waterfalls in the area. A large chamber much like a cave has been caused by erosion around and behind the waterfall, allowing access behind the waterfall itself. We’ll also take you to Upper Kalimna Falls which is just as beautiful.
Upper and Lower Kalimna Falls hiking trail is 9.5km long and will take about 3 hour to complete. This trail was once part of a tramway that was used for hauling timber through the forest to Lorne.
It is always nice to complete any hiking trails in the region after recent rainfalls maximising water flow at the waterfalls. This can result in muddy trails, but it is well worth it.
