About the Otway Harvest Trail
The Otway Harvest Trail formed in 2009 to showcase Otway Ranges local produce and tourism businesses. The trail’s aim was to attract people to visit and stay in the Otway hinterland, and to benefit members through opportunities arising from the collaboration.
To the consumer, Otway Harvest Trail is a local producers’ trail located in Victoria’s Otway hinterland. The trail, as a collaboration, is a hub for Otway Ranges tourist information and a guide for tourists to the best businesses and operators providing places to eat, places to stay, things to do and local food produce in the Otway Ranges.
The Otway hinterland is blessed with abundant rainfall, rich soil, warm summers and mild winters. A patchwork of farming land nestles against a backdrop of pristine, lush rainforest. The area is dotted with a network of village communities, each a vivid reflection of the history, rural character and natural splendour of their locality. A range of specialist boutique producers have established businesses within the area, attracted by the relaxed lifestyle, natural beauty, and opportunities on offer. There are various high-quality accommodation options available to suit the needs and interests of visitors to the region.
A diverse range` of complementary industries have developed in the Otway hinterland including a strong presence of artists and artist studios, and a range of thriving cottage industries which further enrich the visitor experience.
By carefully managing and marketing the attributes of the Otway Harvest Trail we can deliver long-term benefits to its members, the local community, visitors to the area and the local economy. Contact us or visit the membership page for more information on how to become a member.
