Auswalk Walking Holidays takes you to Victoria's best kept secret, a 250 kilometre continuous loop track that includes dramatic coastlines, the joy of walking beside a meandering river and remote bushland full of wildlife, bird and native flowers. It's promoted as a "Symphony in Four Movements".

Auswalk has selected five excellent days of walking to give you an overview of what this track has to offer.

First comes the peaceful Glenelg River, a haven for walkers, fishermen and canoeists. The river carves its way through a spectacular limestone gorge, onto pristine sandy beaches and rocky outcrops.

The grand finale is the Three Capes and Bays section where the track hugs the cliff top all the way. These rugged, wave-bashed headlands are perfect for whale spotting in season and the colony of Australian fur seals at Cape Bridgewater.

The coast offers blow holes, a "Petrified Forest" and an "Enchanted Walk" where vines of bower spinach are decoratively draped over limestone boulders and twisted.

Enjoy a two hour hike at Tower Hill. This takes you around the rim of an ancient volcanic crater and provides an excellent opportunity to see koalas, emus and other wildlife in the wild.
