The Colac Otway Shire is located two hours west of Melbourne and renowned for its magnificent southern coastline, the Otway rainforests and the northern lakes and craters district.

Colac, on the Princes Highway is bordered by Lake Colac which is the largest fresh water lake in Victoria. And to its west, lays Lake Corangamite (a heavily salted water) which claims to be the largest inland natural lake in Australia with a surface area of 234 square km!.

From an historical railway perspective the town is the start of the Beechy Rail Trail (former railway line) that goes south over hills into the valley of Gellibrand and then winds its way up over 1700 feet to Beech Forest at the top of the Otway ranges.
