GLOW WORMS AT GREY RIVER RESERVE

Take the 6km drive along the Grey River Road to the picnic area to view a spectacle of effervescence by night. From Kennett River the gravel road twists and turns until you reach the picnic area and nearby trails. Go when it's dark, switch off your lights (never shine your headlights or torch directly at the glow worms) and watch the embankment on the roadside come to life. By day the short walk from the picnic area through the rainforest is one of the Otways' best.

TASTE THE GREAT OCEAN ROAD

Getting back to basics doesn't mean compromising on your coffee and brunch habits! For cafe culture to match the best of Melbourne hit the Wye General (they also provide catering for special events). For a beer with a view the Wye Beach Hotel is the ultimate, and if you're after some homestyle fare you can't get much better than Kennett River's Koala Cafe.
