Explore the surf coast's unique wildlife

Wildlife exploring

The Great Ocean Road is filled with exciting and rare flora and fauna just waiting to be discovered. Take your family on a wildlife adventure and see if you can spot some of our coastal favourites.

Next time you’re out exploring, see if you can spot the following threatened species.

  1. Coastal Moonah Woodlands
  2. Hooded Plover
  3. Rufous Bristlebird
  4. Southern Brown Bandicoot
  5. Southern Right Whales

The Otways are filled with native wildlife from koalas high in the tree, so small lizards on the ground. Get your explorer hat on toady!
