What you'll do

Your guided experience of the natural wonders of the privately held estate - The Source, Otways - is an unforgettable immersion into native Australian temperate rainforest and its unique inhabitants, the rare Otways Snail and the magical Glow Worms. We will meet at the Homestead at dusk and make out way down to the forest. Our little group of explorers will gather around a warm log fire to connect with each other and this incredible land - sharing some billy tea and some stories, while we wait for the night to descend. As the first stars grace the sky, we will follow the meandering path through this ancient rainforest, listening out for its creatures and descending down to the creek that weaves its way trough the property and leads us into the magical Grotto. Here we settle in for some sensory immersion practice as we patiently await for darkness to descend and the emergence of the glow worms. We will have an exclusive opportunity to witness these rare creatures in their natural habitat. Our experience concludes with a return forest walk up to the Homestead. NOTE: A min of 3 people is required for the experience to go ahead. If fewer than 3 book, you can reschedule or refund.
