Melba Gully is someties called "the jewel of the Otways", an apt description for a place where glow worms can be seen. This area is one of the wettest places in the state, with an annual rainfall over 2000mm, and plant growth is profile. The gully is a dense rainforest of myrtle beech, blackwood and tree ferns with an understory of low ferns and mosses. The 'Big Tree' is over 300 years old. Things to Do * Madsens Track Nature Walk, which takes about 35 minutes, is a delightful walk and gives a good introduction to the features of the original Otway forest. * If you have a raincoat, don't let the rain deter you: it brings the rich green colours of the gully to life. * In holiday periods there are guided night walks to see the glow worms. Facilities * Water, picnic tables, fireplaces and toilets are provided. * Because of the park's small size, camping is not permitted. * Accommodation is available in Lavers Hill, Beech Forest and Johanna.
