Grey River is one of many pleasant picnic areas to choose from in the Otways. There are picnic tables here.

Glow worms are often found near this picnic area. These lovely little worms are not actually worms - they are the larvae of fly-like insects called fungus gnats. The larvae prey on small insects who are attracted to the glow from their abdomen and then trapped in the sticky threads.

Take a torch to find your way along the tracks after dark, but avoid shining the light directly at the glow worms. Torches, loud noises or touching them may disturb the glow worms causing these shy creatures to 'switch off' their light and hide away.
