Explore ancient rainforest brimming with lush ferns and towering trees, feel the mist from the powerful waterfalls, and hike through the cool undergrowth as the fresh forest air fills your lungs.

Stand in awe on dramatic clifftops shadowed by protective lighthouses, see the remnants of sailing tragedies and walk the rugged windswept beaches peering into rockpools teeming with life.

On two wheels or four there are hidden secrets to explore from the tucked away corners of the redwood forest to breweries and farm gates, from the misty inland lakes and rivers to dizzying heights of tree top adventures.

Active Nature

Immerse yourself. Get active, get moving, get real about your place in the natural world. The Otways is a paradise ready for active discovery.


Big Nature

Get up close to big nature in a lush and ancient eco-system shaped by eons of generous rainfall. Find magic beneath towering Mountain Ash trees standing the test of time. Marvel at tree ferns as palm trees and the ancient Myrtle Beech.

Eat & Drink

And the first bunch of pinot graps plucked ready for vintage. The hoppy aroma of a craft brewery. Happy hour at the local pub. The pull of your inner foodie to indulge and know more – of the makers, the growers, the bakers, the artisan and purveyors.


Otway Coast Hamlets

Otway Coast Hamlets – Wye River, Kennett River, Wongarra, Separation Creek, Great Ocean Road and Otway Ranges. The Otway Coast is the tranquil area of townships and rugged coastal beauty between the busy towns of Lorne and Apollo Bay.
