The Great Ocean Walk is our most iconic coastal walk, for good reason, as it traverses one of Australia’s most dramatic coastlines from Apollo Bay to the Twelve Apostles through the Great Otway National Park. The 104 km Great Ocean Walk meanders its way through Manna gums with koalas only a few feet from the track, to traversing massive sea cliffs , cliffs that have made this location famous. You’ll walk through giant mountain ash forest, beneath the tallest flowering plants in the world and on along some of the most remarkable pristine beaches in Australia.
There are plenty of days when the ocean’s azure sparkle looks spectacularly inviting, but when you witness the awesome power of the Southern Ocean’s eternal tidal assault, you’ll see why this coastline is known as the Shipwreck Coast. There’s also ample opportunities to spot wildlife in their natural habitat, ranging from kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas and koalas to black cockatoos, sea eagles, wedge-tailed eagles, dolphins and whales.
Highlights of the Great Ocean Walk include the 12 Twelve Apostles, plus more stunning views as you progress along the track at Castle Cove and at the Gables, as well as Wreck and Johanna beaches, stunning views as you progress along the track, including at Castle Cove and at the Gables.
