Great as a day trip or over a few days!

What a view and experience! Spent a few days scrolling along the coast and beaches. Makes sure to plan the tides and transport back to your base well. Amazing experience!

Fabulous. Windy, great paths and wonderful ocean views. Dog loved the unrestricted running on the beach. Wild ocean and magnificent skies.

Did a short stretch of this from the Marengo end, just a couple of ours the path seemed dubious in the rain. Views were stunning.

This was a very nice walk we did back in June 2012 (Tripadvisor doesn't allow me to pick that date though). Make sure you have enough sunscreen, a hat or a cap because the sun really burns! And comfy shoes and sweater, it may get a bit cold during autumm/winter.

We spent three days on the Great Ocean Road during a holiday visiting relatives in Melbourne. We travelled from Torquay to Warnambool and stopped at all the sites and lookouts in between. The weather was sunny, despite it being winter, and we had the best 3 days. The roads are easily driveable, very dramatic, have great scenery and stopping places,... More

Walked from Blanket Bay back to Apollo Bay - took us jsut over 6 hours walking at an average pace. Pristine and beautiful part of the world, and you are supposed to walk it East to West, but that put too much time pressure on us, we preferred the other direction which was fine as we encountered only 3 other...

For someone who think it's heavy carrying 2L of milk home, Wilson was a god send!Not only does he bring our backpacks, setup our tents (with pillows, sleeping bag and mattress), he also cooked us hot dinners, provided us hot drinks and water and packed us a wrap and snacks for lunch. We were in celebratory mood with the views... More

We walked the entire length of the GOR in 6 days,we went with a company called HIKE2CAMP. Wilson takes all the heavy camping equipment so you only have to carry a small day pack,he also sets up the tents and cooks all meals. Highly recommend this for people who don't have camping equipment or don't want to carry heavy packs.... More
