Otway Fly Tree Top Walk & Zip Lining

Tip: Special discount offers can sometimes be found on Groupon. We bought two for the price of one ticket just prior to entering and saved $40 for a family of 4.

The Otway Fly Tree Tops Walk opened in September 2003 and is the world’s longest and highest of its type in the world. It is 600 meters long and at the top of the tower it is 47 breathtaking meters high – and it sways a little bit, which kids just love!

Another nearby attraction kids will love is the Trees Adventure Course.

Situated high in the Otways above the Great Ocean Road the Otway Fly is a wonderful experience and actually surprised me, personally. We did the Tahune Air Walk in Southern Tassie and were left a little underwhelmed, the cost versus the experience did not equate, for us. However, The Otway Fly is gobsmackingly brilliant. IMHO.

It can be approached from Lavers Hill, Colac or via Turton’s Track (plus a couple of good unsealed roads directly through the forest from Great Ocean Road).

We had stayed the previous night in Forrest and drove in via Turton’s Track after visiting Lake Elizabeth(lower left image) which is famed for Platypus sightings!

  The Tower on the Otway Fly has fabulous views across the tree canopy.
