Zip Line Tour
Think flying foxes and you’re close to knowing what a Zip Line is all about! The Otway Fly Zip Line Tour is a unique eco-wilderness adventure that takes place in the magnificent Otways rainforest.
The first of its kind in Victoria, the Zip Line Tour involves traversing from one platform to another (called cloud stations) whilst attached to a steel cable suspended up to 30 metres above the forest floor.
This exciting adventure lasts 2.5 hours and will have you flying on a series of cable spans and enjoying some features on this Zip Line Tour that are not available on any other Zip Line Tour in the world. The Zip Line Tour is classified as a “medium” adrenalin activity.
The Zip Line Tour features:
- 8 cloud stations;
- 6 exhilarating flights
- 2 suspension bridges at height.
The Zip Line Tour is a fully guided experience. Our tour guides will provide interpretive information throughout the tour so you can learn about our growing and vibrant forests and they will provide you with a fun and exciting expeience that you won’t forget. When you come back to ground, you can continue on to enjoy the Otway Fly Treetop Walk.

- If you book into an afternoon tour (ie the 2pm tour) – You will need to arrive 1.5 hours prior to your Zip Line Tour scheduled departure time so that you can complete treetop walk first.

The Zip Line Tour Experience
When you arrive at the Visitor’s Centre you need to check in with our Ticket staff. Your guides will collect you and your group for a full briefing on the Zip Line Tour including the fitting of your safety equipment including: harness, helmet and issue of you pulley attachments for the cable. You will receive a briefing on the tour characteristics and safety requirements. Once this is complete we’ll take you to the Zip Line Simulator where we will get to check harness fit for comfort and we’ll show you how we want you to land once we get out on tour. Then there is a walk to the start of the Zip Line Tour. Zip Line Tours will be of no more than 12 participants per tour including our two guides.
Otway Fly Treetop Adventures is an eco tourism attraction and every possible precaution has been taken throughout planning and construction of the Zip Line Tour to ensure no damage has or will occur to the forest surrounding or on the Zip Line Tour and that there will be no impact to the forest on an ongoing basis. Cloud stations are attached to trees by eco-clips which is an attachment that does not penetrate the host tree, it allows the tree to continue to grow.
We’ll take you through the forest on a bright, sunny day, overcast or rain filled days. Zip Line Tours leave the Visitor Centre at various intervals. The duration of the adventure is approximately 3.5 hours (including the Otway Fly Treetop Walk).
When you arrive back at the Visitor Centre you can choose to fuel that empty stomach with a meal from our licensed café, tell others about your experience, buy a souvenir and purchase a photo of your own Zip Line adventure.
