Get Off Your Butt And Take A Quick Trip To Erskine Falls
Lorne is beautiful. It's a great spot to get away and have some fun with the family: the beach, the pub, the pier, the great restaurants and bars. You can even do a spot of shopping. Park the car and you stay put.

Well, can I urge you to make an effort and go and have a look at Erskine Falls.

I did, might I add rather hesitantly, though. Who wants to leave Lorne and drive to a waterfall? When my wife explained it was only 10km away, that seemed to ease the pain. When she said the walk from the car to the falls was only 200 metres, I was in.

What a beautiful tranquil spectacle. Sit on a rock and take in the beautiful cliffs that surround you. For the kids this will be quite an adventure!

Now, the walk down is easy. It's the walk back that's tough so take your time. The stairs are extremely well maintained but it's steep. It does have a handrail and a couple of rest spots, which is very handy.

So do take the family for a look. It is really well worth the effort and only takes an hour out of your day.
