The walk itself tailors for all, as it consists of two different paths.  

The easiest and shorter of which is he Lemonade Creek Walk to Erskine falls. Parks Victoria estimate that this walk is 4.4km one way, however this track eliminates some of the challenges that the latter consists of. This walk nonetheless, still allows you to see the beautiful landscape that the Otway National Park has to offer and ends up at the Erskine Falls.

The second trail is perfect those adventure seekers out there, hoping to push their personal boundaries. Parks Victoria states that the Erskine River Walk is approximately 7.5km one way, going past Straw Falls, Spitter Falls as well as rock slabs to which form the most astounding cascades. This walk through the lush rainforest is challenging at times, requiring you to tackle some rock hopping as well as some river crossings. But hey! who doesn’t love a challenge.

As much as we love to go and smash ourselves with a big running session, or by throwing around a few weights in the gym (we pretend to love it anyway!), it’s equally important to look after our body through managing our workload. After all, you can’t continue to train if you’re constantly sore, fatigued or worse of all…injured. That being said, the importance of recovery in attaining your fitness goals is highly critical. Recovery essentially refers to the period directly after a training session, in the lead up to the next. It incorporates all the actions which assist in returning your body to pre-exercise levels.
