Birdwatching in the Otways

There is an abundance of birds in the Otway Ranges. These photos are all taken by the talented Amber O'Meara from Great Ocean Photography. She has kindly given permission for us to display her work so our guests can see the gorgeous wildlife living between Colac and the Great Ocean Road.

Local Birdwatching Locations

On our property we have so far seen the following birds: Silvereyes, Eastern Spinebills, Kookaburras, Thornbills, King Parrots, Crimson Rosellas, Galahs, Bower birds, and New Holland Honeyeaters, and Little Corellas.

Down near the West Barwon Reservoir there is a reserve called Len Sprague Reserve. Wandering along that road and around the walking paths, you will often spot a variety of little birds. The ones we have seen are Superb Fairy Wrens, Swallows, Scarlet Robin, Red Browed Finch, and the Eastern Yellow Robin.
