With over 65km of riding trails, the trails will lead you through rainforests, fern gullies and even waterfalls.

For something a little closer, just 5 minutes’ drive away from the Otway Gate Motel is the beautiful Colac Botanic Gardens. Enjoy 16 hectares of botanical gardens along the banks of Lake Colac. There is also a carriageway that surrounds the gardens that provides access for cars, runners and cyclists. Scenic walking paths, picnic and BBQ facilities and children’s playground are available to make a family day of it.
