“An all-time journey shadowing Melbourne's Great Ocean Road.”— Tom Robson
Whatever you're looking for, this track has it. From rugged, remote beaches, wetlands, and rivers to windy cliffsides, you'll find amazement wherever you turn.
If planning to tackle this entire track, you should plan at least eight days to cover the 100km.
In addition to birds, you might see whales (particularly during their migration period during winter) and seals. The natural bay of Marengo houses a seal colony of around 200.
Of course, it wouldn't be Australia without a few kangaroo... They tend to graze on the natural pastures near the Walk. Keep an eye out for them and maybe you'll see a joey in a mother's pouch!
