We saw some publicity about the Great Ocean Walk when it first opened but first learned about Walk 91 while doing an internet search of walk tour providers.
We were happy with the arrangements and recognise that pick-up arrangements are constrained by the number of vehicle access points near the Walk. The distance each day was appropriate for the conditions on the Walk and manageable at our level of fitness…
The accommodation was excellent. Having the laminated guides to flora and fauna..provided in the cost of the package.. was great and we referred to the latter frequently. That just shows how much wildlife there was to see on the Walk.
The accommodation was excellent and we were very happy with all the accommodation providers. They all took an interest in us, the breakfasts and lunches were all top class and where evening meals were provided they were great. They were all very flexible in altering their plans to fit in with changes we requested to pick-up or drop-off times.
We found the meeting spots easily each day.The photographs..of meeting points.. were a handy reference to provide confidence that we were at the right spot, but were not vital.
Overall we were very happy. Coastal scenery is the main attraction of the Walk and there was plenty of that with lots of great ocean, beach and cliff scenes. Where the Walk headed away from the coast there were still things to attract our interest….
We would recommend the installation of some progress distance markers along the track to give you some idea of how much further it is to various landmarks or meeting points.We found our GPS useful (when it worked) to give an idea of distance covered but it is not essential.
