With over 1032 square kilometres of hinterland and coast, there are heaps of things to do in Otway National Park and its surrounds. They not only include nature walks but also adventure activities (like high ropes courses and Mountain Biking at Forrest), historical visits, and crafts and markets.
There are also plenty of little towns and hamlets to stop for great cafes and restaurants. Learn all about these activities on our Attractions page. There you can search by specific towns or use the interactive map. You can also find a place to stay (with offerings for all budgets).
Plan your visit to coincide with the many markets, festivals, community arts events and cultural festivals that fill the region’s calendar year-round. You can also see things to do in Otway National Park on our What’s on page. The Otways has inspired generations of artists, writers, sculptors and performers.
