Birds at Otway Escapes

Since or first visit to The Otway Ranges area of Victoria our family has been captivated by the spectacular and varied Bird Life in our region.

Now, with the change of season and the forthcoming abundance of flowers, vegetation and Insects the Birds are returning for their spring / summer breeding. It’s an exciting and interesting time if you have a passion in Australian Birdlife.

Over the seasons we see the birds come and go subject to the availability of the most suitable foods for there existence. We are always cheered by the appearance of the red robins over the Winter months and entertained by the Honey Eating Birds and Parrots over the warmer months.

Our quiet and peaceful environment creates the ideal atmosphere to immerse yourself in the sounds and delights of the Australian Spring Bush.

Otway Escapes can offer a varied display of many birds (74 different species recorded to date ) for your visit to our unique and luxurious accommodation.
