Platypus Tours and Great Ocean Walk

At Otway Eco Tours we aim to provide you with an experience that you will remember forever.

Lake Elizabeth

We offer guided Platypus tours, walks on the Great Ocean Walk and Mountain Bike tours and hire.

It is best to be in the area for a few days to take advantage of everything on offer, and get ready to be active. We like you to feel challenged but not out of your depth.

Platypus Tour

Share some time with our unique 100 million year old egg laying mammal the Platypus, in its natural habitat. We guide you by canoe on Lake Elizabeth after a 1km stroll along the river. Our Paddle with the Platypus tour will be an experience you will always remember. See the magical Glow worms on our dusk tour
