Walking above the scenic beauty in Australia is something I will always remember. That 600 metres walk with the cool breeze blowing on my face and greenery all around was truly mesmerising. To every nature lover and those who want to fall for nature, I would recommend Otway fly treetop adventure walk.

Watching Kangaroos so close I could have never imagined. They were so amazing. Not to forget we also saw cutest creatures, Koalas. Having a chance to spend time with them will be cherished for all our lives.
We were able to reach at the deck in less than a minute, the lifts were very fast. Spent a great day at Eureka tower skydeck. Every step was at ease from booking tickets to redeeming them. A truly recommended package.
Balachandra Kocchar Eureka Tower Ticket With Skydeck
The only thing I can say about this tour is EUREKA. Taking the views of Melbourne from high above was something I remember for life. We were so high it felt like touching the sky.
This was my first time but the trainer was so good that I wish to do it again. The trainer helped me with all the safety instructions and helped me relax before the experience. would recommend Otway fly zipline tour to all.
I love doing adventure activities, and Otway fly zipline was the most promising one. I was amazed by all the greenery near the location and passing in between trees. It was so refreshing and great.
