Hard track
Starting at the Sheok Picnic Area on the Garvey Track, Lorne, this walk leads to Upper and Lower Kalimna Falls and back. There's a cave behind the waterfall, giving you access to a whole new view over the Lower Kalimna Falls. This enjoyable hike goes through the lush rainforest on a well-signed dirt track. The walk is not too technical and is fairly flat throughout with some gentle inclines. The track leading to the falls can become very muddy in parts, especially after recent rains. There are BBQ, picnic and toilet facilities located in the Sheok Picnic Area. Go past the Visitor Centre to learn more about the Kalimna Falls and the other walks around Lorne. 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.
