The Great Ocean Walk is a 105-kilometre trail running along Victoria’s southern coast. This magnificent track winds its way along beaches, across clifftops and through coastal forests from Apollo Bay to the Twelve Apostles.
It seems everyone has been walking a lot while in iso, so why not take the challenge and book on this incredible 7 day end to end hike. Anyone with a moderate level of fitness, an enthusiasm for walking and a love of spectacular scenery should be able to complete this trail.
This is one of Australia’s most spectacular walks – the highlights just keep on coming every day. On Day 1 of the walk, we hug the pretty coastline from Apollo Bay to Shelley Beach, gradually leaving civilisation behind us. On Day 2 we head inland into Great Otway National Park where we walk under towering Mountain Ash before hitting the coast again at beautiful Blanket Bay.
On Day 3 our walk takes us past the remote Cape Otway Lightstation. Day 4 sees us walking to spectacular Johanna Beach – this rugged beach looks its best in wild and woolly weather as the huge surf smashes into the rocks. Day 5 is the most spectacular day’s walking and it includes perhaps the most difficult section of the walk along undulating cliff tops – but you’ll have your walking legs by day five and the incredible views provide plenty of inspiration.
|If it’s low tide on the morning of Day 6, you can walk out across the rocks at Wreck Beach to see the anchors of two old shipwrecks that are submerged off shore here. On Day 7, our final leg, we walk towards the incredible Twelve Apostles and wrap up our our adventure. As with all of Park Trek’s tours, you will walk carrying only a light-weight day pack – your camera, water bottle, lunch, snacks and raincoat are the only essentials on the trail. You’ll stay in comfortable accommodation and enjoy delicious home-cooked meals prepared by your guides using fresh local produce. Join us for what promises to be the adventure of a lifetime – seven days of walking, completing the entire 105-kilometre Great Ocean Walk. It’s an achievement to be proud of.|
