We found you and the Great Ocean Walk by searching the internet. The itinerary is very well planned and times allowed are generous and realistic.
Our Great Ocean Walk package was good…the accommodation providers were excellent, interesting people. Rooms very comfortable, good breakfasts and lunches provided. Photos of meeting spots and some intermediate points are a great idea and worked very well.
It is a wonderful walk full of variety and interest in a lovely part of the country.
However there was a total absence of signage at the many features of geological interest to the lay observer. ..(I’m a geologist but did not do
enough swotting before the walk to answer all my friends’ questions.)
I carried 2L water in bladder and 1L in flasks and on the warmer days this was just enough. At the end of day 5 I was quite dehydrated by sand slogging and step climbing. This does not detract from the walk pleasure but should be provided for. Likewise there is a lot of reflection off sea and sand and extra block out is recommended. Carrying a mobile is pretty handy for liaising with the pickup person. The Great Ocean Walk 1:25,000 scale map is essential for navigation.
All in all we had a great time on the Great Ocean Walk and were most impressed. On one thing we agree and that is that we got value for money based on what we learned from other walkers on a guided tour with another operator. Nevertheless we acknowledge small generous acts along the way by the other tour guide.
Thank you, I’ll be recommending your walk to my friends.
