Base yourself in historic Colac to experience the Great Otway National Park, where you can camp and bushwalk to beautiful waterfalls or stunning beaches.
Head to inspiring Lake Elizabeth hidden deep in the towering trees and dense fern glades of the Otways, with heavily timbered flanks and calm waters punctuated by the trunks of dead trees, drowned when the valley was flooded more than 50 years ago.
Spend summer months around Lake Colac, canoeing, kayaking and waterskiing. For adventure pursuits on dry land, bring your mountain bike and tackle the purpose-built single track in Forrest, offering more than three days of riding.
The Otways hinterland boasts a unique combination of aspect, soils, climate and farming practices that produce distinctive and exceptional flavours. Sample the tantalising local produce and wines along the Otways Harvest Trail all the way to Apollo Bay or the unmissable 12 Apostles.
