A 45 metre high watch is climbed through a spiral stairway via the under story to come up among the uppermost parts of the giants of the forest, while the springboard cantilever bounces unsafely high over visually attractive Young’s stream.

The walk is exactly 2km round walk beginning from the visitor central point and takes close to an hour to round off. The walk is characterized by interpretive panels teaching the visitor on forest being showed. For the visitor, zip lining is the suitable springboard activity where you can zip across the treetops in this unequalled forest event, gaining the best view of the beautiful forests.

The Zip Line Tour – This involves moving across different platforms which are linked by tree platforms and attached to steel cable hanged above the forest floor up to 30 metres. This interesting adventure goes for three hours and is unlike every other event out there. A visit is advised to pre-book the Zip Line Tour through the Otway Fly Tree Top Adventures website.
