The Great Ocean Walk winds its way through a pristine national park and along jaw dropping cliffs for just over 100 kilometres. It is a one way, long distance walk with walkers advised to walk from east to west. It begins in the seaside town of Apollo Bay and completes its journey just past Princetown near the spectacular 12 Apostles. It travels through some of the most diverse and rugged landscapes in Southern Victoria. The Great Ocean Walk has been called the’ back stage’ of the Great Ocean Road. It enables you to go where the road does not. The Great Ocean Road does not always follow the coastline – the Great Ocean Walk does. At times you will be walking along beautiful, deserted, sandy beaches and then within minutes you’ll find yourself under the canopy of tall eucalyptus trees. Around the next corner you may be surrounded by native heathland or peering from the top of menacing clifftops. And let’s not forget about the local wildlife. Kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, echidnas and a menagerie of bird life are waiting to greet you as you pass by. Keep your eyes open for snakes in hot weather. They are there but will keep their distance if not provoked. One of the best things about the Great Ocean Walk is that you can tailor it to your preferences. The walk is divided into different sections, some more difficult than others. You don’t have to do all of the walk if you don’t want to. You can simply do sections of it. This is where a Great Ocean Walk Shuttle Service will come in very handy. Leave your car at home and utilise a shuttle service. The walk has been built so you can ‘step on’ and ‘step off’. You can either stay in purpose built campgrounds which are dotted along the course of the trail or at the many private accommodation options along the way. The Great Ocean Walk is like nothing you have yet experienced. If you like walking and you like the ocean then this walk is simply a must. Don’t forget your hiking boots. Below you will find a table detailing the different sections of the walk.
