"Cape Otway & The Great Ocean Road" Cape Otway by Steve-H

Cape Otway Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 45 photos

Too many beaches?

About half way along the Great Ocean Road we reached Cape Otway and the Otway National Park, the lush rain forest made a great change from the miles of twisting roads and the endless beaches, there were Crimson Rosellas flitting from tree to tree (but you had to be quick to see them) gum trees of all shapes and sizes and lots of lookout points on the cliff tops. It was on our way back inland from one of these that we saw our first Koala Bear nestled in the branches of a tree, closely followed by another just sitting in the road. This surfiet of natures wonders still didn`t deter me from taking to the beach though.

The Great Ocean Road

The fantastic drive from Melbourne to Warrnambool is punctuated with views like this, the 12 Apostles are one of Australias most famous landmarks and it`s easy to see why this is also known as the shipwreck coast.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great views, great driving and many of natures wonders.
  • Cons:In peak season it can get horribly congested up here.
  • In a nutshell:One of the best & most relaxing parts of our journey.
