Colac - Cities, Towns and Localities
The Colac Otway Shire and region is only two hours west of Melbourne, and is renowned for its magnificent southern coastline, taking in the Great Ocean Road, the hinterland rainforests of the Otway Ranges and the northern volcanic lakes and craters district.

This region is characterised by vast open areas of grasslands, the stony rises that mark old lava flows, and the remaining peaks of long extinct volcanoes. It is a region of lakes with more than 50 to be found, that form the vast 'Lakes and Craters' region.

The town of Colac is located on the southern shore of Lake Colac, the largest freshwater lake in Victoria, whilst just to the north-west is Lake Corangamite, Victoria’s largest natural lake.

With Colac as the commercial and service centre, the shire has a number of towns and villages nestled amongst tall trees and farmland. Visitors can experience a variety of local produce from the farms, wineries and brewery, as well as the handmade pottery, glass and artwork, some of the fine items being created by the local artisans.

In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
