Trek over 56 kilometres through the Great Otway National Park, well away from the crowds of the Great Ocean Road.

The Great Ocean walk cuts through some of the most iconic scenery in Australia: pristine deserted beaches, sheer limestone cliffs that plunge dramatically into the sea, coastal dunes and towering mountain ash forests.

Koalas, kangaroos, fur seals, black cockatoos and a host of other wildlife call this area home. You’ll have ample photo opportunities to capture the magnificent sights and—with any luck—some of the local animal residents. You’ll cover 56 kilometres well away from the crowds and traffic of the Great Ocean Road, soaking in the true charm of the Twelve Apostles and their stunning surrounds.

This is an exhilarating walk for any nature lover, with enough challenge to give a sense of accomplishment but very achievable for most.
