Walking and driving instructions


Triplet Falls is roughly a 1-hour’ drive away from Apollo Bay, or 2.5 hours from Melbourne. From Apollo Bay Town Centre head east on the B100. In 7 km turn left into C119 and stay on it for the next 14.5km. Then turn left into C159, sealed winding road, and follow it for the next 21km. Turn left into Phillips Track, has ‘Fly Treetop Adventures’ sign, and follow it for the next 7.5km. Last 2.6 km is an unsealed road.

There is a huge car park is at the end of Phillips Track. All facilities are available here (toilets, picnic tables, etc.).

From the parking follow a very well maintained Triplet Falls loop. The arrows indicate which direction you need to go (clockwise). There are lots of wooden stairs and platforms there, hence it’s not suitable for wheelchair/kids stroller. In 35 minutes you reach a first lookout platform (the lower one). Walk up the stairs to the third platform which offers you the best view of the waterfall. The waterfall is very tall and wide. Unfortunately, it is not easy to take a picture of the whole waterfall. You can do bits and pieces, but not the whole falls. From the upper platform, continue on to the loop for 20 more minutes until you reach the parking.

Alternatively, if you don’t have time, you can walk the loop in the opposite direction (anti-clockwise). In this case, you reach the upper lookout platform in 15-20 min. Return via the same track.

Triplet Falls is a permanent waterfall.
