The best tree change in Victoria is in Colac Otway Shire

Colac Botanic Gardens provide a 1.2-kilometre track for running, walking and cycling. The adjoining playground and Lake Colac foreshore make the gardens an ideal place for exercising, walking the dog or having a picnic or barbecue with friends and family.

The Otway National Park is right on your doorstep and offers endless short and long walks taking in temperate rainforest and stunning waterfalls. You can run, walk or cycle on the Old Beechy Rail Trail or the Forrest Tiger Rail Trail. If you’re up for a challenge, why not try the world-renowned Great Ocean Walk, taking in the best sights of the Southern Ocean and Great Ocean Road.

Colac Otway is a mountain biker’s paradise. Nearby Forrest offers some of the best mountain biking trails in Victoria. If surfing is more your thing, the famous waves of Bells Beach are about an hour’s drive away, as are the beautiful townships of Apollo Bay and nearby Skenes Creek and Kennett River. While you’re down the coast, drop a fishing line into one of our estuaries or bays to see what’s biting.
