Great Otway National Park, Victoria Australia

Great Otway National Park is a national park in Victoria (Australia), 162 km southwest of Melbourne. The Great Otway National Park contains a diverse range of landscapes and vegetation types. The 103 km² park was declared in 2004 when Otway National Park, Angahook-Lorne State Park, Carlisle State Park, Melba Gully State Park, areas of the Otway State Forest and a number of Crown Land reserves were combined into one park, after a successful campaign by the local community, led by the Otway Ranges Environment Network.

The park is a popular area for interstate and international tourists, with companies operating tours in the region. It contains three camping areas at Johanna, Aire River and Blanket Bay. The park is accessed from the east via Apollo Bay, from the north via Forrest or Beech Forest, or from the west via Princetown. The park covers both

coastline and hinterland in the Otway Ranges and so includes both beaches and forest, accessible via walking trails. The Cape Otway Lighthouse is adjacent to the park and is open to tourists throughout the week. The park and the Aire River camp ground are home to a significant koala population.

Triplet Falls

Triplet Falls are waterfalls located in the Great Otway National Park, Victoria, Australia. The Falls are fed by the Young Creek and as the name suggests there are three falls that cascade over a lush rainforest to the floor of the valley. The three streams normally flow when there has been significant rain upstream, so it’s not uncommon to see only one or two streams flowing.
