The Great Ocean Walk is one of Australia’s most iconic treks. Join us as we walk just over 50km, between Castle Cove and the Twelve Apostles near Princetown.
The spectacular walk, opened in 2006, weaves its way through national parks full of tall forests, coastal heathlands, wild rocky shores and windswept cliff-tops, presenting amazing views – nature truly unfolds at every step. If you have driven the Great Ocean Road you are in for even more of a treat, walking it gives you a unique perspective of the remote and dramatic landscape which cannot be appreciated from a vehicle window.
During the day we will enjoy fairly steady walks, averaging 17km per day over three days. These walks can be undertaken by anyone with a reasonable level of fitness. It is not technically difficult, but the walk is certainly worth training for if you are not used to long distance walking. However, you probably won’t notice how far you’ve walked as you’ll be distracted by the natural scenery around you. 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.
