Maits Rest

Maits Rest, renowned for its natural beauty, is a must-see destination. Named after former forestry patrol officer Maitland Bryant, Maits Rest has a short walk that meanders through a tranquil fern garden, past huge moss-covered trees. Some are up to 300 years old.

BOARDWALK & WILDLIFE
A wooden boardwalk has been built over the tree-fern gullies and moss-covered roots of ancient rainforest trees, protecting the delicate ecosystem while providing visitors with unique views of the forest. If you’re lucky, you may run into some of the local inhabitants, including swamp wallabies, koalas, ring-tailed possums and grey kangaroos. Rarely seen, but often heard at night, are the yellow-bellied gliders screaming out as they glide from tree to tree.

How to get there
Maits Rest is located 15 minutes west of Apollo Bay on the Great Ocean Road.
