Overview

Walking & hiking

Discover the Great Ocean Road region's myriad coastal tracks, rainforest trails and historic seaside villages, taking in ocean views and dramatic waterfalls as you go. Visit a national park or state reserve for a range of walking tracks that suit all ages and fitness levels, from multi-day hikes to shorter day walks. Alternatively, slow things right down with a historic walk through town, a barbecue on the beach, or picnic in local bushland with resident wildlife.

Great Ocean Walk

Step on and off the track in style along Victoria's west coast, stretching 104 kilometres from the idyllic resort town of Apollo Bay to within sight of the magnificent 12 Apostles. Weave through national parks, walk deserted beaches and gaze over pristine marine sanctuaries. Choose from short trails, day walks or pitch your tent at quiet spots along the way on an overnight trek.

Great Otway National Park

Immerse yourself in some of Australia's best rainforest scenery in the Otway Ranges, walking through tall trees, ancient plant life and lush ferns. Walk among giant tree ferns at Maits Rest or experience the full beauty of the rainforest on the Otway Fly Tree Top Walk.

Discover high waterfalls in the national park's narrow valleys, ranging from the impressive Triplet Falls to secluded falls over fern-fringed pools. View the dramatic cliffs and secluded beaches along the shore on the Cape Otway to Rainbow Falls Trail.

Surf Coast Walk

Take on the whole 66 kilometres or choose a section of the Surf Coast Walk that runs from Torquay to Lorne. Marvel at the rich ochre cliffs of Bells Beach, wander through coastal forests of leafy green eucalypts, and look down at the deep blue waters of Bass Strait.

The Great South West Walk

The entire Great South West Walk takes 12 full days, but with plenty of attractions on offer, you can choose which section you'd like to explore and take it from there. Admire the limestone galleries of the Princess Margaret Rose Cave, see stunning displays of spring wildflowers along the Glenelg River, and walk through the forests and wetlands in Mount Richmond National Park. To get a close look at local fur seals and peregrine falcons, choose the section around at Bridgewater Bay.
