The 30 metre falls are attractive even when there is little water tumbling into the pool below. It is an easy walk to the first lookout, providing a spectacular view over the falls. The steep climb down steps to the second lookout is more strenuous, but worth it for the view from the beautiful fern gully.
A five-minute walk from the car park brings you to a lookout of the falls, cascading 30 metres into a beautiful tree fern gully. You also can take steps down to the Erskine River to view the falls from below. Straw Falls are a 15m cascade on the Erskine River and are a further 400m downstream. Experienced walkers can follow the river from Erksine Falls to Lorne. The 7.5km one-way walk takes about three hours and passes Straw Falls and Splitter Falls. It should not be attempted when water levels are high.
