The Great Ocean Road – Maits Rest Rainforest Walk

Well worth a see is Victoria’s Maits Rest Rainforest Walk. Maits Rest Rainforest is a cool temperate rainforest, it lies protected in a gully in the Otway Ranges, which provides it with its rare climate. The huge Beeches and Tree-ferns here would have been once common across the Otway Ranges. The walk takes about half an hour (allowing time to pose in the roots of the vast tree roots!) and there are boardwalks across the more difficult sections making it an even gradient and easy walk.

Maits Rest was named after the districts first forestry officer, Maitland Bryan. His family still live in the Otway District.
