The Otways
What facilities are provided?
The Great Otway National Park, Otway Forest Park
and Anglesea Heath are situated South West of
Melbourne.
Facilities at the Paddys Swamp TBVA include:
• Parking area accommodating vehicles both with
and without trailers
• A unisex toilet
• A shelter
• Information board and map
• Picnic tables and seats
• Trail bike stands
The Otways provide some great opportunities to
pursue outdoor recreation activities. This brochure
will provide you with trail bike information for riders to
enjoy the natural features of the Otways.
Great Otway National Park was created in 2005 and
includes the former Otway National Park, AngahookLorne State Park, Carlisle State Park, Melba Gully
State Park and State Forest areas.
Otway Forest Park was also created in 2005 and
incorporates State Forest areas containing foothill
forests extending from the main ridge of the Otway
Ranges to the undulating plains and plateaus further
inland.
Riding Route
East Otway Ride 70 km
This loop ride comprises both forest roads and local
roads. There are some small river crossings, some
sandy and clay sections. There are a few steep
ascents and descents, but generally the loop is flat.
Sections of track become slippery following rain. Two
seasonal road closures are included in the ride.
Seasonal Road Closures
Anglesea Heath is a co managed park between the
community, Parks Victoria (on behalf of DSE) and
Alcoa of Australia Limited (Alcoa). Anglesea Heath
contains about one quarter of Victorias plant species.
DSE and Parks Victoria close these roads after
heavy rain or when the road conditions become
unsafe. This is necessary to ensure track safety.
Check with the local DSE or Parks Victoria office for
updates on road closure information.
Paddys Swamp Trail Bike Visitor Area

Swamp Road, Paddys Swamp Trail Bike Visitor Area

Ride for Tomorrow
Be Bushfire Smart
Trail bike riding is great fun, but just so you don’t
spoil the fun for others who come to use the forests,
please note the following:
Fires can only be lit in properly constructed
fireplaces.
•
Call the Victorian Bushfire Information line 1800
240 667 for more information
Reduce Your Noise
DSE and VicRoads have developed
some new signs to indicate noise
sensitive areas where riders should
ride more slowly and quietly.
Obeying these signs is voluntary (i.e.
not a legal requirement), but if riders
ride slowly and quietly in these
areas, it will help keep the peace and
be greatly appreciated by other
forest users and nearby residents.
•
Do not light a fire on a day of Total Fire Ban.
Refer to map overleaf for key noise
sensitive areas.
“Be seen but not heard – ride quiet bikes” Otway
Trail Riders
Respect the Environment
Track Closure & Rehabilitation
Please respect track closure and rehabilitation areas.
There are many reasons the closure of a road or
track may be required. These include:
•
Public Safety
•
Impacts on
(ie. noise)
•
Erosion/water quality impacts (i.e. sedimentation
of streams, important water catchment area etc)
•
Environmental impacts ie. damage to vegetation,
weed spread (eg. Phytophthora), disturbance to
fauna/habitat etc
•
Duplication of existing/nearby road network,
resulting in unnecessary maintenance costs
•
Low level of recreational use
•
Surplus to DSE or PV managerial requirements
adjoining
landholders/residents
The Anglesea Grevillea (Grevillea infecunda) is only
found in small pockets around the town of Anglesea.
It is one of our threatened flora species. The roots of
the Grevillea grow close to the surface and are very
brittle, making them very susceptible to damage. The
Anglesea Grevillea uses its root system to
germinate.
DSE & Parks Victoria consult in regard to track
closures with groups including the community, Four
Wheel Drive Victoria, Australian Motorcycle Trail
Riders Association and Otway Trail Riders about
track closures.
Riding only on the legal road network will help
protect the Anglesea Grevillea for future generations.
When tracks have been or are proposed to be closed
and rehabilitated in the Otways, a consultation
process with stakeholders takes place. The most
recent closure and rehabilitation plans and proposals
can be found at www.dse.vic.gov.au.
Phytophthora cinnamomi (pronounced: fy-TOFFthor-ah) is a foreign plant pathogen. This pathogen
attacks the root systems of susceptible vegetation
including the iconic grass trees in the Otways.
People and vehicles are the prime movers of the
pathogen. Riding only on the legal road network and
washing your bike after every ride will help reduce
the spread of Phytophthora
