The Otways

Immerse yourself in some of Australia's best rainforest scenery in the Otway Ranges amongst tall trees, ancient plant life and lush ferns. Walk among giant tree ferns at Maits Rest, see the glow worms at Melba Gully, or experience the full beauty of this rainforest paradise on the Otway Fly Tree Top Walk.

To make the most of your time, base yourself at one of the villages on the doorstep of the park: Lorne, Apollo Bay, Anglesea, Aireys Inlet or Colac.

Discover high waterfalls in the national park's narrow valleys, ranging from the impressive Triplet Falls to secluded falls over fern-fringed pools. Head out from Lorne to explore the ten different waterfalls, all within easy reach of town. For dramatic cliffs and a swim at a secluded beach, make your way to the remote and beautiful Cape Otway.

Enjoy the great outdoors and explore the wonders of The Otways at the same time. Settle in for a few nights of stargazing on a camping trip, revel in the changing landscape and vibrant flora on the Great Ocean Walk, or hit the tracks and trails on horseback or on a mountain bike.
