1 DAY OTWAY OUTING MOTORBIKE ADVENTURE TOUR
Enjoy a one day motorbike tour of the Otway Ranges. The Otway National Park is an underrated natural beauty. With 500+ waterfalls, and over 2000 kms of trails to explore. You'll be in awe of the views, the rainforests, the track variety, the history and I haven't even started talking about the world famous Great Ocean Road.
The Great Otway National Park situated within the Otway Ranges doesn’t get the name “Great” by being average. Covering 1,023 square kilometres the area is home to some of the largest trees and most diverse collection of fauna in Victoria. The choice of tracks to ride range from soft sand to clay and everything in between.
If you were to try and ride every track in the Otway Ranges, you’d be there for months. The good news is, you don’t have to, because we’ve ridden all the tracks and have collated a route which includes some of the best vistas and attractions into our Otway Outing Motorbike Tour.
The Great Otway Outing one day motorbike adventure ride is rated as beginner standard. To understand our ride ratings, please visit our Ride Difficulty Explained page.
THE ONE TOUR GREAT OTWAY OUTING
The Great Otway Outing Motorbike Tour is a one day adventure starting in Geelong. With an early start we’ll ride through the Anglesea Heath and make our way to our first stop in Lorne for morning coffee and refuel if needed. From Lorne we’ll make our way along the world famous Great Ocean Road. A side track will see you experience some early 19th century wood mill ruins nestled next to the majestic Carisbrook Creek.
A ride through the Otway ranges is not complete without experiencing Turtons Track, one the windiest bitumen roads in the Otways. Soon after, you’ll visit the surreal Californian Redwoods, a plantation experiment planted in the 1930s. Initially it was felt the plantation was a failure because the trees were slow growing, but when you see the height of the Californian Redwood trees some 90 years later you’ll wonder whether the experiment was abandoned too early.
After the Californian Redwoods we’ll ride to Gellibrand, home of the Adventure Bike Shop to enjoy a well deserved lunch and refreshments at the Gellibrand River General Store. Lunch will consist of Lasagne, salad and chips with your choice of one drink eg. tea, coffee, orange juice, soft drink or energy drink.
After lunch we’ll visit either Stevenson Falls or the West Barwon Reservoir spillway depending on time. Then make our way back to Geelong via some meandering scenic back roads.
