With 4WDing the Otways you can choose between easy Otways 4×4 tracks or more challenging ones if you’re up for a bit of adventure – either way you’ll be driving through some stunning bush scenery! Magnificent Mountain Ash forests, lush rainforests, fern gullies, waterfalls and spectacular coastal views…
Otways 4×4 tracks and roads are suitable for standard four-wheel-drive vehicles when it is dry. When it’s wet, you’ll need mud tyres and a winch. There can be seasonal road closures so make sure you check before you go to see if there are any that will affect your 4WD Otways trip.
If you’re new to 4WDing in the Otways, there is a tour available that teaches you how to prepare your vehicle and you have a guide who will point out things of interest along the Otways 4×4 track.
Each vehicle is equipped with a UHF radio so you can stay in contact with your guide. Your guide will also ensure you have some awesome video and photos of your 4WD Otways adventure too.
If you’re looking for accommodation for your 4WD Otways trip you have the choice of some fantastic camping spots in the national parks or you’ve got a great choice of hotels & motels, bed & breakfasts, retreats, farm stays and self-contained cottages to choose from.
