Maits Rest Rainforest Walk
This rare patch of old-growth, temperate forest is an ideal spot for reconnecting with the area’s ancient terrain. A boardwalk hovers over the moss-covered roots of 300-year-old trees to preserve the delicate ecosystem. Mountain ash, myrtle beech, and blackwood tower overhead, while ferns fill the understorey. Koalas, ringtail possums, long-nosed potoroos, and swamp wallabies all live here. Come nightfall, glow-worms may appear – as might the partially nocturnal Otway black snail. This gentle 800-metre walk takes about 30-minutes.
