The Treetop Walk is a unique attraction which enables visitors to experience a 600 metre walk through beautiful cool temperate rainforest. Experience the sensation of being 25 metres above the forest floor. The walk commences at the visitor centre, which subtly introduces you to the rainforest, descending gently to the entry structure and onto the steel trussed tree walk.
As you proceed along the level walkway, the ground progressively drops away taking you on a journey through the upper reaches of the rainforest vegetation strata. You emerge through the ferns of the forest floor to the tranquillity and beauty of the forest canopy.
At 25 metres high you experience a unique, close view of the flora and fauna of the rainforest. Before you know it you are staring out above the tops of some trees and there are also some spectacular stands of ferns to look down on.
Beautifully designed and informative Interpretation Panels, explain in greater detail what the visitor is looking at several points along the walk, enriching the Otway Fly experience.
The walkway itself is some 600 metres long, while the walk is a 1.9 kilometres round trip and takes approximately 1 – 1.5 hours to complete although you should take your time and enjoy all the forest has to offer. The Otway Fly provides visitors of all ages and levels of mobility a unique and challenging experience at all times of the year.
The canopy walkway is designed to have minimal impact on the forest environment. The 600 metre long steel section is divided into lightweight trusses ranging from 24 metres to 40 metres which are supported by 12 towers.
The spiral tower stands at an exhilarating height of 47 mt, and the cantilever sways gently in the tree canopy offering spectacular views and a challenge to the thrill seeker. This is a nature experience that will have your senses tingling and if you say you are not scared of heights, the Otway Fly will test that claim.
Otway Fly Tree Top Walk is the highest and longest walk of its type in the world. It is able to withstand 280km/h winds
