Welcome to the Great Ocean Walk
A comprehensive free guide to planning your Great Ocean Walk
The Great Ocean Walk is Victoria’s premier long distance walk, hugging the dramatic coastline between Apollo Bay and the landmark Twelve Apostles along the Great Ocean Road. It offers a great variety of contrasting habitats, historical interest points, wildlife and beautiful remote beaches to explore – bounded by the wild Great Southern Ocean. Many people are familiar with the Great Ocean Road but the Walk offers completely different perspectives, far from the roads and people.
The Great Ocean Walk can be tackled as an extended trip of up to 7-8 days or broken down into smaller sections and day hikes, with accommodation options nearby accessed from the Great Ocean Road. This web site is intended to provide useful information to the would-be walker and help you get the most from your exploration of this fabulous Walk and coastline, whether you are taking an organised tour or walking independently.
This site is compiled and maintained by staff at RAW Travel, a tour operator specialising in active walking and cycling trips who are experts in Great Ocean Walk tours. This is not the “official” site but a very useful one – we do not register people for the Great Ocean Walk, which is done through Parks Victoria.
