Twelve Apostles Lodge Walk
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 19, 2011

It seems odd to me that we should have flown half way round the world to go walking, but not at all odd that we should have found Bothfeet perfection.

As a walk, The Great Ocean Walk suited us (me at 60, my wife, and our 8-year-old daughter) perfectly. 10 to 20 km, some stiff climbs but none too long, limited nasties (one leech, satisfyingly bloody and even more satisfyingly not on me) and unlimited empty sandy beaches. April weather perfect for someone used to a British climate.

Bothfeet supported the walking well. Lots of guidance from friendly natives, guides and porterage if required (not us), kit hire if required, transport to and from walks. Packed lunches and snacks.

And when we got back ... five star relaxation. Lots of space and warmth, hot showers, comfortable beds. And above all the cooking, or rather cheffery, at the time of writing fusion style from a Vietnamese restauranteur in waiting. Most pleasant habit of not charging for minor luxuries like cakes for tea, foot spas, soft drinks.

Suited us perfectly. The owners are cheerful, hospitable and immensely hard working. Well worth twice twenty-four hours on Quantas.

Room Tip: Will fit in third bed in double room.

This is a newly constructed eco-lodge which is in a stunning location and where attention to detail shows. There are currently 5 lodges, all spacious and all taking full advantage of the lovely location with lots of glass for views. Huge bathrooms.
We stayed as part of a walking tour of the Great Ocean Road and meals were provided and they were excellent - top restaurant standard.
It isn't available to book simply as a hotel, as far as I know, so has to be booked as part of a walking tour - which they organise etc - and I think they also rent it out off-season to business organisations. But if you are considering a walking tour in this area, and want a bit of luxury to support your walking, this is the place
