STAY IN THE OTWAYS
accommodation as unique as the region
If you’re looking for somewhere a bit different to stay then you’ll find it in the Otway Country to Coast region, be it a secluded spot with spectacular views of the ocean or hills, a hidden treasure tucked away amongst forests and ferns or fascinating stay amongst native and farm animals overlooking valleys and rolling hills. The Otways offer a range of accommodation choices from romantic getaways for couples to convenient self contained cottages and houses for families as well as larger accommodation options for groups. Each with their own unique style, settings and views. Some with their own attractions.
Feeling a bit more indulgent? The Otways fully self-contained accommodation options offer you a diverse range of places to stay. Choose a romantic cabin for two tucked away in a secluded setting, or designer house with sweeping ocean views and room for a family or two, you'll even find quite a few pet friendly accommodation options.
If you plan on spending a few days consider combining a couple of locations to make your stay even more memorable or come back and stay somewhere new for a totally different Otway holiday experience.
