The reason for the word "Great" in the name is because the park is an amalgamtion of Otway National Park and a number of state parks and reserves. The park is popular with tourists as it is on the famed Great Ocean Road. Although this tourist route is more famous for its coastal attractions, many tourists also head inland to Otway to experience temperate rainforest and to see wild life including koalas and kangaroos. The park is also considered an "Important Bird Area" (IBA) BirdLife International.
Other features of this park include: beaches, rock formations, heathland, and scenic waterfalls nestled among lush vegetation. The park extends from Torquay to Princetown and into the hinterland near Colac.
