The Great Ocean Walk is one of Australia’s most iconic hikes. And if you are new to walking or hiking, and are keen to give it a go, then this is the perfect trip for you.
It doesn’t matter what your motivation is. You may be on a weightless program, or coming back from illness or injury, you may have reached the stage where you want to do something for yourself or you’re simply not confident in walking alone. Whatever your reason, this trip will give you the support, guidance and friendship you need to feel empowered and gain that sense of achievement.
The spectacular walk weaves its way through national parks full of tall forests, wild rocky shores and windswept cliff-tops, presenting amazing views. If you have driven the Great Ocean Road you are in for even more of a treat, walking it gives you a unique perspective which cannot be appreciated from a vehicle window.
We have handpicked our three favourite day walks, averaging 10km/day over three days. You get to see the best bits. You probably won’t notice how far you’ve walked as you’ll be distracted by the natural scenery around you and the friendships you make with your fellow walkers. Only day-packs to be carried.
At night we’ll stay in shared apartments/cottages, with comfy beds and warm showers, no need to do it too tough! There is an option to be catered for or you may self-cater using the full kitchen available to you.
Want to see Melbourne? Ask us about the option of staying for the weekend before or after the walk.
