  • With one day off and the lighthouse on our radar we came here to enjoy the afternoon. The place is huge, but luckily there are tons of koalas that look great. Also had two in my arms, their hair is so...  more »
  • Beautiful views of the ocean, trails in the lush forest and, above all, watching the koalas and kangaroos in their natural habitat. It is a must on your way to the twelve apostles.

  • We wished we had more time to explore this forest. Lots of little picnic areas and lush greenery. The beautiful weather down this part of the world allows for the falls to always be flowing. The redwood forest was something we feasted our eyes on it was absolutely amazing and a sight to behold. The roads are winding and when driving through the forest always go slow and be very vigilant.
  • Takes one back in time. If you have an interest in botany, well then this place will certainly interest you no end. Gives one a real insight into the dinosaur era and the plants and trees that thrived the planet then. Its intriguing to note that some of these will live long after we have vacated this planet. Ample parking space available close by. No entry fee applicable.
  • The Great Otway National Park is one of the most amazing places on this earth. It ranges from farmland through rain forest and includes several major waterfalls and hundreds of small ones. There is a sequoia California redwood grove. You can travel for days on foot and not explore a hundredth of this amazing park. One of the best examples of old growth and logging regrowth forests in Australia.
  • What an amazing part of Victoria it is!!! We enjoyed a camping day in Elizabeth Lake camping site. It was incredible to be so close with the nature, fresh air and sound of animals and rain. We will definitely be back.
  • A great day. Weather not so good. Bit cloudy and some light showers. Walking the fly is very good. Magnificent views of the forest floor
