One of the surprises of the Great Ocean Road is that you can easily find yourself in the Otways, a coastal rainforest, one that is green and lush and feels far away from the stunning coastal views. As you would expect, there are waterfalls to visit (though these tend to require a bit of hiking) and great views of trees, ferns, and more. Another surprise: a grove of California Redwoods. I also visited Otway Fly, an attraction that offers a zipline experience. I skipped that and opted instead for a treetop walk along catwalks 80 feet above the forest floor.
