Welcome to Fairy Village
These school holidays, Otway Fly Treetop Adventures will become home to a magical fairy village.
Visitors can discover this whimsical neighbourhood of fairy homes, snuggled within a magical nook in the Otway Fly Treetop Adventures trail. The magical village features tiny, rustic homes carved from recycled timber, recovered from the Otway Ranges.
The fairly village comprises of 20 homes varying in sizes from small enchanted bungalows to teetering, multi-story treehouses, up to one metre high. Visitors can also spot tiny fairies as they go about their day in the fairy village.
The delicate and beautiful fairy homes were built by an unexpected source: Men’s Shed Colac. Each home was designed with incredible thought and care, with the team at Men’s Shed Colac spending as much as two days a week creating the otherworldly residences. It’s estimated it took the fairy homebuilders over 350 hours to build the homes, with some weighing up to 80 kilos.
This is the fifth partnership between Men’s Shed Colac and Otway Fly Treetop Adventures - demonstrating the continued shared commitment to supporting local communities and driving tourists to the region. In 2018, Otway Fly Treetop Adventures and Men’s Shed Colac launched a beautiful and enchanting magical fairy wonderland, but the new Fairy Village will be grander in scale and ambition, with larger houses and more fairies.
After the school holidays, two of the fairy homes will be donated to the Friends of the Colac Botanic Gardens.
While discovering the fairy homes, visitors to Otway Fly can also venture out onto the Treetop Walk, which features a 600m long, 25m high elevated walkway providing unrivalled views of the unique beauty of the region’s flora and fauna, from the rainforest floor up into the towering heights of the treetops.
Visitors can also climb the 45m tall Spiral Tower and the cantilever perched above Young’s Creek, which is a truly exhilarating experience as you gently sway with the rainforest canopy.
So fly in and feel the fairy magic at Otway Fly this summer and if you’re lucky, you may even spot a fairy zipping through the treetops on the attraction’s high-flying Zipline Tour!
