Why Tots Love it

Everything is new and interesting for these adorable mites. Engage their curiosity and senses. They’ll be wide-eyed and wondrous; inspecting colours, plants and insects. Watch them pointing, naming and questioning.

There’s plenty of green space to skip about safely. While exploring, your toddler might discover a new found love for little leaves and special sticks. They could start a cool collection. Or draw the scene – so bring crayons and paper.

Just turned 5 and at least 125cm tall? They might be ready to step outside their comfort zone for their first-ever zip! From one ‘Cloud Station’ to another, they’ll wonderfully lose track of time while climbing and flying through the rainforest. Don’t worry, there’s an expert guide to keep them safe and teach them nature secrets along the way.

Most importantly, toddlers love nothing more than your undivided and loving attention. Phones down, bonding levels up. Otway Fly is a mini family holiday with wholesome toddler activities that everyone will cherish forever.
