Greatopia’s Colac & Otways

When escaping to Greatopia and journeying down the Great Ocean Road you will be immersed in the small country culture only regional towns can offer.

To experience the true country style hospitality of Greatopia, eat your way along the Otway Harvest Trail which has a range of breweries and wineries, markets and farmgates with artisan producers and growers serving up a foodie paradise. Eat at the many cafes or restaurants on offer or create your own picnic in the park at Colac bontanical gardens.


To complement the experience and beauty of the Colac Otway the charm of the Forrest Guesthouse is an absolute winner. With a quaint homestead vibe, here you really feel like you’ve escaped to another life.

Nestled amongst rolling hills, the Johanna Seaside Cottages have all the modern facilities you need to enjoy your stay in comfort and relax poolside. With only a short walk to Johanna Beach you get the best of a beachside holiday with the relaxation of immersing in the countryside to top off a perfect getaway.


Here in the Otways you can lose yourself in the tranquillity of the area. Wander through the Californian Redwoods, the Colac Botanical Gardens and Lake Colac, the Otway Harvest Trail, or the Great Ocean Walk. Amble to Beauchamp Falls, Cape Otway Lightstation, Red Rock Lookout or spot a platypus at Lake Elizabeth.
