welcome to the
GREAT OCEAN WALK
This is where your journey begins
THE GREAT OCEAN WALK.
THE GREAT OCEAN WALK
The Great Ocean Walk (Great Ocean Road 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 Great Ocean Walk offers completely different perspectives, far from the roads and people.
This inspiring 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 Great Ocean Walk walker and help you get the most from your exploration of this fabulous walk and coastline, whether you are panning on undertaking an organised tour or walking independently or by bike. If you decide to travel by bike ensure you speak to your local bike accessories shop to know the essentials you may need.
Here you can find great information relating to the route and stages, specialist expert guides, accommodation (luxury or budget), food, transport, maps, distances, appropriate equipment, safety, communications, weather and tide information, Camping permits and much much more.
When you are ready to experience this wonderful part of Victoria’s coastline you can find information on RAW Travel’s range of highly rated guided and self-guided tour and trip options for your consideration.
In October 2021 severe weather has resulted in the closure of a section of the Great Ocean Walk between Johanna beach and Ryan’s Den due to a landslip and fallen trees. (This does not affect the majority of the track, almost 90% is still open for walkers.) An estimated re-open date for this section has now been given by Parks Victoria for Jan 28 2022.

End to End Guided Trip – Great Ocean Walk
Our Raw Travel Great Ocean Road Walk adventure was beyond my expectations. The organisation of the trip was great, the accommodation and meals excellent and the guides Eric and Lee were superb. They were passionate about where we were walking, had lots of information, ran the walk very smoothly and always very helpful
Self-guided walk with RAW Travel
Thank you for all the organisation that meant everything went so smoothly. We had a great time, finding some sections a bit challenging especially the weather on the final day. Our drivers Lee and Drew were fabulous, so helpful and knowledgeable about each section of the walk. Our accommodation was great, the food at Chi Medicinal Farm to die for. We would certainly recommend your company to anyone wishing to complete a walk. We’ll be looking at some of your other opinions for future adventures. Thanking you again
WOW – You must complete this walk end to end
We saw a window of incredible weather and decided to head back down to the Great Ocean Walk and complete it end to end! Winter wonderland with minimal tourists at the end of the work was a bonus!
The Great Ocean Walk was incredible
The greatoceanwalk.info website was super helpful in assisting us to plan the most exceptional Great Ocean Walk trip. We decided to book a 6 day guided walk with RAW Travel. Eric our guide was the best we could not imagine how we would of completed this walk without his encouragement.
