Great Ocean Walk David Simpson
I came upon Walk 91 by searching the Great Ocean Walk on the Internet.
We were very pleased with the itinerary and all went to plan.
The walking package was fine. The map, walking notes, track information and brochures, accommodation, transfer arrangements were well organised and added to a very successful walk.
The accommodation providers were exceptional. They were all very obliging, friendly with clean comfortable accommodation. I was pleased we rearranged our travel dates so we had the opportunity to stay at the Eco Lodge for 2 nights. They are doing some wonderful work there and we had some lovely conversations with the other residents who came from a number of other countries.
We had no trouble finding the meeting spots each day.
The Great Ocean Walk was stunning. The views and landscape were all we expected and more. We also enjoyed the flora and fauna ( koalas, black swamp wallabies, 4 to 5 foot tiger snake, small unknown snake and my twitcher wife was particularly taken by the number and variety of the birdlife).
You can commend Parks Victoria on the quality of the track. It was much more comfortable walking than expected so rather than watching ones feet all the time we were able to view the surroundings. One improvement (luxury) that could be considered is some additional seats at some of the major view points along the coast.
Thanks for a wonderful experience.
