Hard track
Starting near the Sheok Picnic Area, in the Great Otway National Park, this walk takes you past Won Wondah Falls, to Henderson Falls and back via the Nature Loop track. Amble along a gentle uphill track through dense wet forest shadowed by towering eucalypt trees to reach Won Wondah Falls. Further along, the journey ends in the midst of a fern gully at the base of Henderson Falls, where you can watch the falls cascade over a moss-capped cliff face to a small pool below. Although the track is flat and relatively easy, it can get extremely muddy and slippery after rainfall. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
