Who am I kidding? I didn't do this walk... 104 kilometres?? Seriously this walk is for die-hards. I did a bit of the walk here and there and I have to admit I am impressed that people actually do the walk... but Lordy... what on earth makes you want to walk 104 kilometres for pleasure. :) It stretches 104 kilometres from Apollo Bay to Glenample Homestead, located near The Twelve Apostles, Victoria. The walk passes through the Otway National Park, with Parks Victoria providing seven hike-in camp-sites spaced at intervals of 10 km to 15 km along the track.

Our group of 9 friends did the self-guided 6-day Great Ocean Walk from Apollo Bay. We very sensibly used Hike2camp to provide all our needs, carry all our belongings and set up our tents in each overnight camp. We found Hike2camp run a very professional and friendly service. They provided our breakfast for us to cook or organise ourselves and a packed lunch with plenty of snacks for each day’s hiking. When we reached each day’s camp, our tents were set up with our gear in each, and we had our one-pot dinners ready for heating on the supplied gas stoves. Hike2camp take on all of the hard work and logistics, leaving hikers with the simple pleasures of just hiking during the day and enjoying the company of the other hikers at each camp site at night. I highly recommend using Hike2camp, owned and operated by young local people, who we found provided value for money.

Just finished walking the 100km Great Ocean Walk over 6 days as a self guided walk with Hike2Camp. A great budget option, a fraction of the price of a fully guided and/or accommodated walk, for those of us who aren't up to carrying all our gear ourselves and prefer to just have a daypack. Hike2Camp provide luggage transport, food, sleeping stuff and setup a tent each night for you. On arrival at the campsite our tent would have been set up and self-inflating hiking mats (2 each for double layer) set up - just needed to unbag the pillow & sleeping bag & sleeping sheet. In the morning, we were expected to deflate and roll up the sleeping mats & put them and our sleeping gear in bags for transport - they took the tents down. Food was provided, snacks - muesli bar, chips/BBQ shapes, cake, nuts, juice box along with a wrap or veggie slice for lunch. Dinner was a frozen individual portion in a takeaway food type container which we then heated up ourselves in a frying pan over a small camping gas cooker. Each individual family group had there own bag containing the appropriate number of a metal mug, plastic bowl, cutlery, tea towel and dish sponge for washing up. Dinners on our trip were home cooked curried sausage casserole, butter chicken casserole and spaghetti bolognaise. First 3 nights were at official GOW campsites - basic with no showers and non-flushing composting toilets. We got to talk to other GOW hikers and see how the hardcore hikers managed to treat their water for drinking and cook their dehydrated meals on tiny hiking stoves. Last 2 nights were at the Princetown Recreation Reserve. Not the most picturesque tent site but an interesting contrast to the GOW campsites. Proper toilets & showers. An interesting mix of fellow campers in the full range of accommodation from luxury caravans, hired campervans to tents. International travellers, locals on holiday, hikers, an interesting mix. Serenaded by holiday makers playing the guitar around a campfire at night, a loud whip cracking display one afternoon by a girl, kids riding bikes & playing with their remote control car. We walked up to the Princetown pub for dinner each night, along a dusty road, over the one-way bridge (with people jumping off into the water) and then the boardwalk across the wetlands - about 1km walk. Great well priced meals at the Tavern. Came home feeling relaxed and proud of our achievement, ready for our next adventure!

Spectacular coastal walk that can be done in daily sections or shorter sections and loops. Despite being Australia’s busiest walk you won’t see many people away from the various trailheads. Local shuttle services like Alan at Go Go Walking provide efficient and affordable shuttle services.
