Towns and Activities
Cape Otway & Otway Ranges

Cape Otway
The Great Ocean Road heads inland after Apollo Bay through the rain forest to Lavers Hill Princetown and the 12 Apostles. Located 222 km south west of Melbourne via the Great Ocean Road, Cape Otway and the Cape Otway National Park are recognised as part of the most beautiful and rugged area of the Great Ocean Road region.

Much of the district around Cape Otway is included in the Otway National Park, which features rainforest and streams in the Otway Ranges, and extends right down to the coast where a rugged coastline meets with pockets of sandy beaches.

Camping and backpacker facilities available at Bimbi Park ,  its natural bush setting will provide you with a unique experience. You can enjoy a horse ride or walk through unspoilt bush and see Koalas and Kangaroos in the wild. Limited camping also available in National park controlled camp areas. 

Take a few side trips to Cape Otway Light Station, Blanket Bay and Parker Inlet with remote rugged coastline and abundance of wildlife including koalas and wallabies.

Otway Ranges

Fern gullies, rainforest, woodland and heath make this park a national treasure. Swamp wallabies and ring-tailed possums are common.
The park offers camping, walking, fishing, canoeing and surfing.  

The inland region has extensive rainforest drives and waterfalls and small towns and hamlets.

The recently opened Great Ocean Walk starting at Apollo Bay is a 91 kilometre walking trail that finishes at the 12 Apostles.
