Go off the beaten track with salty hair, sandy toes and wind against your cheek. Slide down the sand dunes, explore the Otway forests, swim the sea, taste the salt, climb trees, float on the river, breathe the wild air, gaze at the stars and enjoy the natural world.
Take a hike along the Great Ocean Walk, experience breath taking birds-eye-view of the magnificent Otway Ranges from the World’s tallest treetop walk at Otways Fly Treetop Adventures or discover the rich history within the region.
