Highlights of the Great Ocean Walk Include:
The scenic start of the Great Ocean Walk sets the standard for the rest of your journey. The walk follows the magnificent coastline, with sweeping views of the Great Otway National Park and the Cape Otway region.
After visiting Cape Otway Light Station, you will pass the old Light Station Cemetery, in the direction of the Aire Heritage River. The tombstones reflect the hardships earlier settlers experienced, when first inhabiting this challenging southern coastline. As you approach the coast again with wonderful views, the vegetation changes to dry coastal forests, inhabited by Echidnas and King Parrots. Experience spectacular views of Bass Strait along the cliff tops, which lead you to past tree ferns and tall eucalypts found in the wet gullies. The tall rainforests are home to Black Wallabies who dominate this walk along old forest tracks. Remember to look out for the Manna Gums, as they are home to the local Koalas.
Leaving the cemetery the track heads towards Station Beach, taking you past coastal wattle and bearded heath. Admire wind-sculpted slopes and cliff tops with sensational views and visit a spring fed waterfall, cascading onto rocky platforms below.
This section of the walk also features a river estuary, rocky escarpments and stunning coastal views .You will pass heath land, wildflowers and grass trees. Be prepared for some beach walking as you drop down onto beautiful beaches.
Look out for majestic Wedge-tailed eagles and White bellied Sea eagles. As the track rises back to the cliff tops you are presented with outstanding views from the coastal forests, high on the sea cliffs.
Finally walk amongst the Sheoak trees, dropping down onto historical Wreck Beach. Admire the old anchors rising out of the sand, as testament to why this region is referred to as the Shipwreck Coast.
Once past the beautiful Gellibrand estuary the track climbs up for the last 5 kilometres of the Great Ocean walk, finishing with impressive and unforgettable views of the 12 Apostles.
