Get off the beaten track of the Great Ocean Road and head deep
into the Great Otway National Park for either easy or challenging
four-wheel driving and some great camping and bush scenery. Just an
hour's drive from Geelong, the Otways have a lot to offer for all
four-wheel driving skill levels. Roads and tracks in the Otways are
driveable in a standard four-wheel drive when it is dry, but mud
tyres and a winch are necessary when it is wet.
Base yourself in Forrest for a weekend of four-wheel driving.
Tracks of interest around the area are Cowley track, Goat track,
Noonday track, Number One Spur track, West Barwon track, Turtons
track, Delaney's Road and Curtis Road. Alternatively, the area
around Lavers Hill provides further opportunities to explore the
Otways and its star attractions. Tracks in the area include Egan
track, Mount McKenzie Road, Number Nine Ridge track, Holy Water
track, Bennets track and Heffernan track.
