This is a lovely stop, we visited as part of a small bus trip and had about 30 minutes to walk the loop. It was pretty great and gave a nice feel for the rainforest. It felt like we had the place to ourselves. I...More

Wow this was a fabulous experience. We arrived at 7pm and made our own way on the track ( rather scary as no one else was there ). WE kept our head lamps on for about 5 mins into walk then switched them off and...More

On your way through the otways, stop here to view the large trees and peaceful surrounds. great spot for a wedding, or for wedding photos. Take the time to see your surrounds as you miss so much beauty.

Mait's rest catches you off-guard on a journey which features some of the most scenic ocean views in the world. All of a sudden, you find the road turning inland and becoming a rainforest! I visited in the early morning and was the only person...More

This route is a fairly short walk although you'll need to be in decent shape to accomplish it. Lots of pretty steep winding trails and its generally quite a humid atmosphere. Some huge trees and unusual flora to gawp at along the way. Can be...More
