The Otways is where coastal rainforest meets wild Southern Ocean on the Great Ocean Road. And there are tons of Otways things to do. 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. Learn more about big adventures.
Get active – take a hike through the forest, along a river. Walkers of almost any ability can trek around the Otways, discovering the Great Ocean Walk, waterfalls, lush forests, cliff top walks, heritage and coastal trails. Learn more about our walks and waterfalls.
And then – one of the tastiest Otways things to do – is allow the pull of your inner foodie: indulge and learn more (of the makers, the growers, the bakers, the artisan and purveyors) followed by Happy Hour at the pub. Learn more about food and drink.
