Lavers Hill - Melba Gully (Great Otway National Park)



Known as the Jewel of the Otways, this is one of the wettest places in the state with an annual rainfall of over 2000mm. The gully has prolific plant growth and is a dense rainforest of Myrtle Beech, Blackwood and Tree-ferns, with an understorey of low ferns and mosses.

Perhaps the most unusual inhabitants of the area are the glow worms, which can be seen at night along the walking tracks.

Madsen's Track Nature Walk - This 35 minute loop walk is an adventure into a world of ancient, mossy trees and cool fern gullies. Start at the picnic area and follow the information signs along the track and listen for the soothing sound of Anne’s cascades.
Rest at the site of the Big Tree; a huge old Otway Messmate, which has fallen and started recycling back into the forest floor sustaining new life and growth.

Picnic tables, a gas barbecue and toilets are provided at this site. Camping is not permitted.
