Treetops Adventure, Yeodene

Thrill seekers look no further than Treetops Adventure in Yeodene. Feel the adrenaline pumping through your veins as you soar through the messmate trees of the Otways.

Cape Otway Lightstation

Towering atop the 90-metre cliffs of Cape Otway stands one of the most significant lighthouses in all of Australia. Feel the wind on your face as you step out onto the balcony and don’t forget to keep an eye out for passing whales!

Budj Bim Cultural Landscape Tourism

Budj Bim Cultural Landscape is the first ever UNESCO world heritage listing for a cultural site that was sought by the traditional owners.

Budj Bim Cultural Landscape is home to the Gunditjmara people and is known for the lava canals, lakes and land that allowed the Gunditjmara people to create aquaculture systems for trapping eels and fish to create a sustainable food source, on which they have lived and traded for many centuries.

12 Apostles Helicopters

Marvel at the iconic 12 Apostles from a new perspective with a scenic flight from 12 Apostles Helicopters. A truly breathtaking and bucket-list worthy activity not to be missed.

Live Wire Park, Lorne

Zipline, roller coast, climb, explore or wander through this supercharged adventure park. Adrenaline junkies will feel right at home discovering Australia’s most extreme zipline.

Wildlife Wonders, Apollo Bay

Quite literally discover the wild side of the Great Ocean Road at Wildlife Wonders. Immerse yourself in a guided tour through the wildlife sanctuary experiencing some unique Greatopian highlights.

If that wasn’t enough it is also one of the few wheelchair and pram-friendly walks along the Great Ocean Road meaning that the whole family can come along!

Forrest MTB Hire, Forrest

Is mountain biking more your vibe? Look no further than Forrest MTB Hire. Forrest is considered one of Australia’s top mountain biking destinations with trails catering to beginners as well as the more dedicated dirt diehards.


Twelve Apostles Lodge Walk

Active adventure for the luxury lover? How does a multi-day passage from Castle Cove to the 12 Apostles with overnight stays in eco-lodges complete with rainforest showers, comfy beds and foot spas sound? Perfect. We thought so too.

Ride with Us, Timboon

Coast through the 12 Apostles Hinterland on a brand new e-bike from Ride With Us. The Camperdown to Timboon rail trail is a must and if you book a Gourmet Rail Trail Ride with a produce hamper or a backpack of snacks you can make a day out of it.


There is without a doubt an activity to suit every style of adventurer so grab that beanie and let’s get going!
