An Otway National Park accommodation option

March 2, 2015

Summer has ended, taking with it the sunshine, heat and many of the coastal-loving visitors who flock to our region’s beautiful beaches to soak up the sun and cool down in the Southern Ocean.

But while the end of summer means the end of beach-lovers, it doesn’t mean that the region loses its appeal – it’s just that the focus changes and the Otway National Park and its natural inland attractions become the major drawcard.

Unfortunately, demand for Otway National Park accommodation options is always high and sometimes visitors are left searching for a place to stay so they can take in more of the Otways’ waterfalls, forests and fern-filled gullies, not to mention the man-made attractions such as lightstations and tree-top walks. Luckily there is an Otway National Park accommodation option not far away, and it comes with all the benefits of the coastal options but with a much friendlier price tag and the benefits a major regional city provides.

Otway Gate Motel in Colac is an easy drive from the Otways and our rooms are popular with visitors who can’t find or don’t want to stay on the coast. Take the approaching Great Ocean Road Marathon in May as an example. Thousands of runners will descend on the region for the annual event and many of them won’t want to make a long trip home after running themselves ragged. However accommodation along the coast and into the Otways will be at a premium during the weekend and many tired competitors won’t be able to find a room – unless they head inland where accommodation options such as the Otway Gate Motel provide a comfortable bed and filling breakfast.

We’re used to looking after visitors attending our region’s wonderful events – ranging from music festivals and marathons to custom car and bike shows and arts and craft festivals – and those who just want to escape and enjoy a well-earned rest.

So whether you’re a marathoner or bushwalker, if you’re looking for Otway National Park accommodation options, look a little further inland and enjoy your break at the Otway Gate Motel. Get in touch and you’ll discover why our guests keep coming back.
