OVERVIEW
Come and experience what is destined to become one of the world's great hikes - right on your door step. Opened in 2006, the new Great Ocean Walk spans 91 kilometres of one of the most spectacular stretches of coastline in Australia. If you think you already know this area from driving the Great Ocean road think again!

The walk takes you to unspoiled and previously inaccessible terrain, far from crowds and traffic. Breathtaking coastal scenery, deserted wild beaches, sheer cliffs, historical lighthouses and shipwrecks, giant mountain ash forests, pristine river estuaries, abundant wildlife, dunes and coastal heathlands all await the adventurous trekker on this exciting expedition.

The Great Ocean walk extends from Apollo bay through the Great Otway National Park, to the famous Twelve apostles near Port Campbell. Along the way it traverses some of Australia's most amazing coastal scenery, cutting through the Otway National Park where mountains and forest plunge dramatically to meet the Southern Ocean. The trail is rich with wildlife as the Otway national park is home to over 60 threatened species, so expect to see Wallabies, Koalas, Echnida's and other iconic Australian wildlife on your hikes as well as abundant birdlife.

We have chosen the highlights of the walk for this event, offering some of the most spectacular and remote sections of the trail to showcase the wonderful diversity of scenery and habitats.

Private Expeditions: If our dates don't suit and you have a group of 8 or more we can run this expedition on any date you wish.

Note 1: From mid November to mid January, millions of flies inhabit the track and make the walk very uncomfortable. We suggest not to walk in this period.

Note 2: This walk traverses the coastline of Southern Victoria with all of its ascents, descents and forested areas. The distances covered on some of the 3 consecutive hiking days exceed 20kms and walking on soft sand can make this tougher than the distances suggest. There are some very challenging sections throughout the walk and a reasonable level of fitness is required. Each day you'll be transferred back to base which means you'll only have to carry your day pack.
