Activities In And Around Countrywide Cottages (Otways) Accessible Accommodation:

Their bushwalks are approx 5 feet wide, steeper at one end of the property but suitable for strong arms or motorised chairs. Access to your private yard is via the ramp exit from the cottage and down a slight decline. They have a communal recreation area that offers a BBQ and pool table. Unfortunately, the toilet in that area is yet to be converted to an accessible one. It's in the very short plans - promise. There is a large dam on site in which guests are welcome to try their hands in yabbying or to take their dogs for more off-leash fun and swims. Access to the dam is via a sloping driveway. However, you are able to park nearby and wheel straight into this area.
