Great Ocean Walk, Wreck Beach

Get out of your car and put on your boots. It’s the best way to see the beauty of the Great Ocean Road. In its entirety, the Great Ocean Walk is an eight-day trek stretching more than a hundred kilometres between Apollo Bay and the 12 Apostles. Each section is unique, and you can tackle it as a multiday-hike or ease into nature with a gentle day walk. Pitch a tent at remote campsites or unwind in luxury accommodation. The choice is yours. 

South West Walk

Walk This Way

Looping 250 kilometres from Portland, the remote Great South West Walk weaves around Discovery Bay, Glenelg River and into untouched forests. Tackle a shorter section, like the eight-kilometre Blowholes to Bridgewater Bay walk, which takes in the petrified forest and a seal colony.

Surf Coast Walk, Torquay

Choose Your Path

Start your day with a latte and end it with wine on the Surf Coast Walk. Stretching from Torquay to Aireys Inlet, this 44-kilometre trail meanders across clifftops, through eucalypt forests and along sandy beaches. The easy, short Yellow Bluff to Point Danger section is close to Torquay. For a shorter hike, there is a spectacular 4.6-kilometre trail connecting Wye River to Kennett River along the coast. Even better, there’s a cold (or warm) beverage waiting at either end.
