Otway Fly

I love places that challenge the popular stereotypes that many people hold about Australia – the beach, the desert, the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge, and Uluru.

Weeaproinah is one of the wettest places in the state of Victoria. Although it’s very close to the coast, this locality at the end of the Otway Ranges boasts magnificent mountain ash rainforest that contrasts lush green foliage with tall, straight tree trunks. Birds and wildlife abound.

The Otway Fly is a treetop walk and/or zipline adventure through the forest, taking advantage of different levels and heights, and allowing visitors to experience different aspects of the Australian bush.

Most of the rail trail between Camperdown and Timboon can be walked or cycled. It weaves through the outer edge of the town of Cobden, where these pictures were taken.

Halls Gap, Victoria, Australia.

Halls Gap is a picturesque small town nestled in the Grampians National Park, which features a breathtaking mountain range that rises sharply out of the flat land surrounding them in northern Victoria, Australia. Kangaroos, kookaburras and possums are frequent visitors to campsites and eating areas. Emus, kangaroos and other wildlife roam freely through the natural Australian bush.
