Otway Ollie Tree Top Dragon

An ancient dinosaur egg hatched on the 20th of November 2008 on a rainforest path and adopted by the Otway Fly Tree Top Walk. Ollie now calls the breathtaking cool temperate rainforest home.

“Ollie has so much fun and loves playing on the 600 metre long, 25 metre high elevated tree top walk. It’s the worlds longest and highest treetop walk, and it’s a kingdom fit for a dinosaur. He’s always running up to his lair at the top of the 47 metre high tower for a birds eye view through the canopy over the wet eucalypt & cool temperate forests” says Elaine Burridge GM.

Ollie is a very good baby dinosaur but all he wants to do is have fun! That’s why Ollie has invited all his new friends to come and play with him at his home, Otway Fly, on the 27th of December to 11 January.

“Ollie has giveaways for the kids and he is very, very excited! Ollie just can’t wait to show his dinosaur kingdom where there’s plenty of flora and fauna to see. Come and play on his new playground & go abseiling” Burridge says. On some weekends in January, there will even be Ollie’s real life cousins, the Roaming Reptiles, there to touch and play.

Ollie loves taking his new friends down the prehistoric path where they can see and learn more about the world of his dinosaur ancestors, which have been extinct for over 100 million years. Follow the trails through his Myrtle Forest home. Like Ollie, the Myrtle lives at the Fly and remains the keeper of millions of years of secrets.

“Ollie has been stomping around making lots of appearances in Geelong at the Westfield shopping centre and even the Apollo Bay Day Care Centre where he had a great time at his first ever Christmas party” says Burridge. You can check him out at Facebook under Otway Ollie.

The Fly is directly accessible from Phillips Track and is 15 minutes' drive from Lavers Hill, 45 minutes from Apollo Bay and 40 minutes from Colac. Travelling time from Geelong is only 1.5 hours inland. Or if you have all day, take the famous scenic route along The Great Ocean Road. Well worth the journey.
