Thinking about a long weekend away in the Otways? We’ve put together a suggested 3 day itinerary that gives you a taste of what the Otways is all about — fun, adventure, getting back to nature, fresh air, beaches… sounds like bliss right?
Start your Otways 3 day itinerary in style with a surfing lesson at one of the Otway Coast’s pristine beaches. After a fun-filled and action-packed morning, head to one of the local cafes, bistros or pubs for lunch or take a picnic to one of the many picnic spots. For the afternoon head to Red Rock (Australia’s youngest volcano) to explore this volcanic plain which is the third-largest in the world. For dinner head to one of the hotels for some good old country hospitality.
Day 2 of your long weekend away in the Otways will take you to the Great Otways National Park. Explore this lush, cool temperature rainforest, discover lakes and the waterfalls that flow all year round, do a zipline tour or treetop walk if that’s your thing and experience the feeling of awe as you walk through the Californian redwoods plantation.
Pack a lunch to take with you as it’s easy to spend the whole day here.
On the last day of your long weekend away in the Otways, head to the Cape Otway Lightstation where you’ll see stunning ocean views from the Lighthouse Balcony.
After lunch (there’s a cafe at the Lighthouse) get in a round of mini-golf (where you can also do rock climbing) or you can try paintball, globe riding or hoon around on a Segway before heading home after an action-packed Otways 3 day itinerary.
For accommodation suitable for a long weekend away in the Otways you have the choice of holiday houses, camping, caravan & camping grounds, hotels & motels, retreats, bed & breakfasts, self-contained cottages and farm stays.
