We all agreed that ‘the Great Ocean Walk’ was an amazing experience and we were so glad that we did it together as a family. It was very difficult at times, but it was worth every blister,bruise, scratch and mozzie bite! It was an excellent adventure, but more of a hike than a walk!
The walk was very senic, with so many beautiful views. We found the best views and walks were from Cape Otway to Ryan’s Den.
The Great Ocean Walk campsites were very good, some with excellent privacy. The conditions of the track varied – some easy going, some rough to walk on. It would be good if Parks Victoria could put some signs along the way, so we knew how far we had walked between sections.
We would suggest to walkers to work out how much water you need carefully, as we underestimated how much you need when it is hot! Pack a first aid kit with plenty of band aids for blisters!
Thanks to Mark for all your work in preparation etc. We have recommended you to everyone we have told about our big adventure. Some of our friends are a bit sick of our stories!! It was an experience of a lifetime.
