Ot­way Fly Tree­top Ad­ven­tures

Time Out (Melbourne) - - KIDS - Ni­cola Dowse

SAD­DLE UP YOUR ju­nior Tarzans and dis­cover the Ot­way Fly, where jump­ing off trees (re­spon­si­bly) is en­cour­aged. Just un­der three hours’ drive from Mel­bourne (ex­plor­ers of the Great Ocean Road of­ten drop by), the Ot­way Fly sits in a pris­tine pocket of pri­vate rain­for­est where kids big and small can take wing through the trees and climb tow­ers nearly 50 me­tres tall. In­trepid ar­bo­re­al­ists older than five and taller than 125cm will love the zi­pline tour. Sim­i­lar to your play­ground fly­ing fox, the zi­pline al­lows you to whiz be­tween tree­top plat­forms and past trees hun­dred of years old. Look around while on the plat­forms and learn a thing or two from your friendly zi­pline guides. Make it through to the fi­nal zi­pline and you’ll get the chance to do a bit of in-flight freestyling – time for funny faces, fun poses and the chance to fly up­side down (if you dare).
