A reminder that patrolled beaches and parks are closed. This Easter the message is clear. Stay home. Protect our health system. Save Lives.

The Prime Minister, Premiers and Chief Health Officers have asked all Australians to stay at home unless we must seek medical attention, travel for work or education, undertake essential shopping or exercise.  Great Ocean Road Regional Tourism supports the State and National effort to stop the spread of COVID-19 and asks everyone to adhere to these restrictions. As much as we normally love to welcome visitors, we are asking you to stay at home whilst these bans are in place. Our small communities do not have the health services and resources to support an outbreak of COVID-19. We look forward to welcoming you back when restrictions are lifted. 

 It's not business as usual - for the locals in the Otways, click here for an update on who's still open.

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.

Feel dwarfed amongst the ancient giants of the forest. Follow the sounds of a trickling stream to the edge of a cascading waterfall. Join the colourful meeting of green forests and blue ocean. Bare witness to the ever-changing moods of the Southern Ocean. Nature is king in the Great Otways.

Eat & Drink

Harvested fresh from fertile volcanic soil by the hand of a knowledgeable local. Food and beverages produced in the Otways just taste better. Graze your way around the Otways Harvest Trail to taste all the reasons why.

Join the pursuit for ecstasy in whatever fashion you please with an endless variety of adventures built to showcase the capturing beauty of the Otways. Befriend the locals as you bike, hike, ride, kayak, board, drive or fly through the regions best. Then return to base to soak in some of the regions luxuries.

Wild for Wildlife

Shhh. Did you hear that? Look, it's a... The Otways are home to many of Australia's favourite locals including kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, platypus, koalas, glow worms, birds, seals, penguins and even migrating Southern Right Whales.
