This walk can be done in sections or done in day walks or two day walks or four day walks .it runs through to the twelve apostles. Travelling the great ocean road is a wonderful experience in itself. But the walks Give an exciting wilderness feeling. The information centre on the highway before the turn off into Geelong is a... More

What a fantastic experience. I walked in November 2014 with guide Mitch and support Lee. They were excellent in ensuring we enjoyed our hike to the max. Mitch discreetly attended to any blips in health and well being, so we were quickly back to our best. This allowed us to really enjoy a hike that was at times quite taxing... More

My daughter and I walked from Blanket k Bay to the 12 apostles over 5 days. Extremely challenging walk (I am a late starter to bush hiking) but we completed. Camp site facilities were all fantastic with Johanna Beach campsite being the most picturesque. Well done Parks Victoria

I walked the GOW in Nov/Dec 2014 and it was a great experience. The paths were in great conditions - thanks to Parks Victoria - and the signs were well maintained. I walked on my own but every now and then I stumbled across other groups on the way but that is no problem at all. Most of the time... More

Did this 7 day package in mid Nov - excellent hike every step of the way from Apollo Bay to the 12 Apostles. Great accommodation and catering - excellent experience with RAW Travel - very professional. Stunning part of the world and historically important, loved the wildlife. Will recommend RAW Travel to all. Loved every minute of this hike.

We did the 6 day package with Walk91 of Apollo Bay in the first week of November and it was a fabulous experience. Being in our 60’s and from England we were concerned that it might be too hot but the weather was very kind to us. We have done long distance walks in many countries and this one is... More

A must on ones 'bucket list'. Loved the peace and quite, listening to the wind through the trees, the 'Om' of the ocean and the calling of koalas. The path is extremely well maintained hats off to Victoria National Parks.

We hiked from Johanna beach to Princetown. This was actually a couple of years ago so things may have changed since then. At the visitor center in Apollo bay we were set up with a shuttle that we met in Princetown and left our car there and drove us to Johanna beach. We walked a few hours from there to... More

We only did art of the walk but it has to be one of the most stunning in the country. Very popular. Do your research first.

After hiking the length of this 100km-plus trail, I can certainly recommend this fine walk, though the Great tag might be pushing it. A lot of the walk has limited or no ocean views, and though you see a lot more of this magnificent coastline than from along the road, it is best described as a coastal forest walk, punctuated...
