I am the storm carved coastline, the beauty in the wreckage
Great Ocean Walk
The Great Ocean Walk hugs the rugged coastline from Apollo Bay to the 12 Apostles, taking hikers to places never experienced before. The 104km trek traverses sandy beaches, thick forests and some of Australia’s tallest coastal cliffs. Walkers can choose from a variety of off-walk accommodation options and purpose built “hike-in” campsites.
Whatever way you tackle the Great Ocean Walk, a few hours or a few days, it is an experience to remember.

Rainforest & Waterfalls
Let's go chasing waterfalls - With its diverse terrain and coastal margin, the entire Great Ocean Road region is a natural for waterfalls. Typically they offer access through forest settings alive with sights and sounds of wildlife. Keep your eyes peeled for koala, echidna, wallaby, weird fungi, wildflowers and native birds.
Volcanic Lakes & Plains
Follow meandering roads north from the coast to explore sublime volcanic landscapes and charming inland towns. Enjoy the contrast of conical peaks and deep crater lakes that punctuate the even carpet of rolling farmland. Dry Stone walls dissect the landscape, an aesthetic and practical solution to farm a landscape strewn with scoria. Charming towns with well preserved buildings and tended avenues of elm, oak and plane provide visions of England on volcanic plain.
Get up early and reward yourself with an incredible 7km walk from Princetown to the Twelve Apostles in the early morning light. Running from Monday - Friday during school term (excluding public holidays & excluding pupil free days), the FREE will transport you from the 12 Apostles car park to Princetown to begin your adventure. Meet the bus at the Twelve Apostles car park, get off at Princetown and walk the 7km along the Great Ocean Walk back to your car.
