Part of Great Otway National Park, the Mait's Rest walk has been beautifully created and maintained. Through temperate rainforest of gums and ash, a boardwalk weaves around the ancient trees, and beside ferns. There are many unusual shapes made by fallen trees, roots and branches, and I'm sure children (and perhaps adults) could imagine elves and Hobbits living here. We saw fantails, and could hear other birdlife. The path could probably handle a pushchair, but a wheelchair may be a little more difficult. Only 30 to 40 minutes are required for this visit, and it is well worthwhile.
