Where is Otway?
Otway is a cape and a bounded locality of the Colac Otway Shire in southern Victoria, Australia. It is located on the Great Ocean Road and most of its area is enclosed in the Great Otway National Park.
It was originally inhabited by the Gadubanud people and was discovered by Europeans when Lieutenant James Grant made the first west-to-east passage through the Bass Strait. Grant named this cape after Captain William Albany Otway.
