A koala bear sighting at Cape Otway is almost guaranteed if you stay here. If you just pass by you may spot one or two with a little luck.

Koalas are in abundance in the Great Otway National Park. They are often spotted along the Lighthouse Road. Another good spot is along the Great Ocean Road. Koalas start being active from the afternoon onwards. During the day, you may see them resting on a branch in the tree. However, they sleep around 20 hours each day. To increase your chance for an unforgettable sighting stay at least one night in the National Park or along the Great Ocean Road. Do you like to know the exact spots for koala watching?
