Update

An all-time journey shadowing Melbourne's Great Ocean Road.

Tom Robson

Overview

Features: Swimming — Views — Waterfall — Wildlife

Description

This one-way track shadows Melbourne's famous Great Ocean Road. The track takes your through the Great Otway and Port Campbell National Parks. Great Otway houses some of Victoria's most remote rainforest and coastal scenery while Port Campbell hosts the famous "Twelve Apostles". These wave-sculpted rock formations are a must-see if visiting the area.

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.

Flora & Fauna

Penguins can be seen at the base of the Twelve Apostles viewing area. Other birds like Peregrine Falcons, Australasian gannets, albatrosses, muttonbirds, and short-tailed shearwaters can also be seen along this track's massive shoreline. If you're lucky, you might also catch a glimpse of greater Victoria's rarer birds, the rufous bristlebird.

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!
