Hiking the Great Ocean Walk - Hedonistic Hiking

The Great Ocean Walk is a 100 km continuous walk exploring the stunning scenery of the Great Otway and Port Campbell National Parks.  It is the ultimate guided tour with a relaxed pace, award-winning luxury accommodation and fabulous food and wine.

The Great Ocean Walk starts in Apollo Bay, 180 km west of Melbourne, and ends at the Twelve Apostles near Port Campbell.  The hiking is wonderfully varied and includes an amazing variety of coastal environments with a diverse array of flora and fauna - towering gum trees, deserted beaches and fertile farmland.  Fabulous hiking enhanced by the enthralling history of the Shipwreck Coast and Cape Otway Lightstation, the oldest surviving lighthouse on mainland Australia.

We offer this exclusive tour once a year in March.   For other dates we can offer bespoke tours for private groups.
