A Cuddly Celebration to Start Otway Fly Tree Week
Zip down this weekend and help celebrate the start of Otway Fly Tree Week. This annual event at the Otway Fly Treetop Adventures kicks off this year with a special weekend-long animal encounter exhibit.
Coinciding with Planet Ark’s National Tree Day, Sunday 26 July, Otway Fly will be selling special seeds for guest to plant at home. National Tree Day is Australia’s largest community tree planting and nature-care event, joining thousands of individuals in making a difference, connecting people with nature, beautifying neighbourhoods and inspiring positive environmental change. All proceeds from the sale of the seeds will go towards future tree planting in the Otway forest.
Come along and meet some of the native animals that call the rainforest home. Get up close and personal with a cuddly wombat or feel the slick skin of some of our reptile friends. Learn how these critters thrive in the Otways, see how they use the different layers of the rainforest and experience their home from their point of view.
