Overview

The Great South West track has got to be Victoria’s best kept secret – a 250km continuous loop of untouched environment, from dramatic isolated coast with massive limestone cliffs and pristine beaches, to meandering rivers and remote bushland teaming with wildlife. Aboriginal heritage sites, the mighty Southern Ocean and freshwater lakes make this one of the most varied walks in Australia. This walk is a “Symphony in Four Movements”, depicted beautifully in this video.

The first stage is the picturesque Glenelg River, which stretches out as it nears the coast then carves its way through a spectacular limestone gorge. Then it is onto the pristine sandy beaches, rocky outcrops and freshwater lakes of Discovery Bay Coastal Park. The grand finale is the Three Capes and Bays section where the track hugs the clifftop all the way.
