Location and surroundings
Cape Otway, Victoria (Australia)
Detailed location provided after booking
- Zip-lining on-site
- Whale watching
The Great Otway National Park provides visitors with a unique opportunity to meander through rainforests filled with scenic streams and waterfalls as they make their way to the coast, to unwind on the gorgeous beaches.
Cape Otway plays host to some extremely impressive natural attractions, such as The Twelve Apostles, a collection of rocks right off the shore of nearby Port Campbell National Park along the Great Ocean Road. Although only eight rocks remain standing, it’s worthwhile to pay them a visit along with the oldest and most enchanting lighthouse in Australia, The Cape Otway Lightstation. After climbing the steps to the top, famously known as the “Beacon of Light,” visitors might be able to spot whales swimming and splashing about in the distant water, or head back down to the beach and over to Marengo Reef to spot fur seals and resident fairy penguins.
Just ten minutes from the cottages sits Maits Rest, a circular walking trail on a boardwalk built over gullies and green mossy roots, providing visitors with an up-close and personal experience with the tranquil forest. Guests inclined to continue exploring forestry should be sure to spend time at Melba Gully State Park, where the half-hour Madsen's Track Nature Walk leads lovers of all things nature to spectacular trees, fern gullies, and unusual glow worms that light up the trail at night.
Up and down the Great Ocean Road, guests will find countless activities to try and a plethora of exciting places to discover. Apollo Bay, the nearest town to the cottages, has restaurants, cafes, and supplies guests might need during their memorable stay at the cottages.
