The Otway Fly is a 600 metre long 25 metre high elevated tree top walk ascending at a gentle grade through a magnificent stand of cool temperate rainforest featuring Myrtle Beech, Blackwood and Mountain Ash.

For the thrill seeker a 45 metre high lookout is ascended via a spiral stairway through the understorey to emerge amongst the crowns of the giants of the forest. The Springboard cantilever (Similar to a diving board) bounces gently high over picturesque Young's Creek. The Tree Top Walk was opened in September 2003. It is the world's longest and highest tree top walk at 600 metres long and 47 breathtaking metres high.

    I love how the metal bridge comes across (no pun intended) to the eye differently than the rest of the s matter. Almost a prison feel
