Lower and Upper Kalimna Falls

Discover the stunning Kalimna Falls and their spectacular surrounds, with cascading water and magnificent forest sounds.

These two falls are a popular track surrounding Lorne, providing an opportunity for photography enthusiasts and hikers alike. From Lorne, drive along Allenvale Road until you arrive at Sheoak Picnic Area and look for the path leading to the falls. This track follows the path of early pioneers, who used the historic timber tramway track for transporting timber into Lorne between 1890’s and 1920’s.

Lower Kalimna Falls

As you walk towards Lower Kalimna Falls, you’ll follow the path through a deep creek valley surrounded by dense tree fern and towering trees overhead. The lower Falls are not large, but you can  climb in behind the them and look out through the falling water to the large pool with moss covered rocks. This is a relatively flat and easy 6.5 kilometre return walk taking 2 hours and 30 minutes.

 

Upper kalimna

After experiencing Lower Kalimna Falls, continue down the path kilometre or so to arrive at Upper Kalimna Falls. These falls are a series of cascades with rolling water into the creek. From Sheoak Picnic Ground this is a 8.5 kilometre return walk with an estimated time of 3 hours and 30 minutes.
