We thoroughly enjoyed our three days on the Great Ocean Walk. We had a bit of everything—rain, cloud and sun! The organisation of the whole hiking trip was incredible– not one fault at all.
The times, meeting places and itinerary was fine. The bus journey was also good. The bus left at the said time both ways and was as comfortable as one would expect it to be. Our hosts and hostesses at the B and Bs were amazing.
We arrived the first day dripping wet and Andrew took all our wet gear and put it on his boiler for the night so they were all dry by the next day. We also met interesting people at both B and Bs. Finding the meeting places was very easy with all the maps and pictures you had given us. The walk itself was good, there was a bit of variety each day and we were never bored, we saw lots of porcupines, a couple of groups of Kangaroos, heaps of different birds and even a snake one of the days. The walk on the last day was a lot like NZ bush as well as the up and down nature of it, and having a hot day walking in the shade like that was perfect. We managed to beat the times suggested, but thought that perhaps if there were a few places along the way where one could sit a few minutes and take in a breath taking view it would have been great. Thank you for your expert help and advice.
