Editor’s Note


Welcome to the first issue of Otway Life Magazine!

This is an exciting community enterprise initiative of Forrest & District Neighbourhood House with any profits being ploughed back in the neighbourhood house program.

We aim to provide interesting, thought provoking and local, information and news. Otway Life Magazine is created by the people for the people, who live or visit The Otways. There is a particular focus on community concerns, the environment, sustainable living and creating a work life balance.

We welcome any suggestions and offers of content. We have very reasonable advertising rates for business and personal classifieds. Community notices are free!

Who Are We?

The Otway Ranges are located in South Western Victoria and stretch from Anglesea in the east, to Princetown in the west. It encompasses the Great Otway National Park, and is populated by a number of rich and diverse communities.

The Otway Ranges cross over two shire councils, the Colac-Otway Shire and the Surf Coast Shire. The townships that fall within the ranges include: Anglesea, Aireys Inlet, Lorne, Wye River, Apollo Bay, Princetown along the coast and Deans Marsh, Forrest, Kawarren, Barongarook, Gellibrand and Laver’s Hill in the hinterland. The townships of Colac, Birregurra, Moriac and Winchelsea, while not strictly in The Otways region, service the residents and visitors to the ranges.

Neighbourhood House Programs

Every issue of Otway Life Magazine will feature the term programs of our dynamic neighbourhood houses:
