We did a three day walk from Castle Cove to the 12 Apostles. We found the walk a little disappointing - expected more coastal paths and while there are many nice areas and views, the bulk of the walk is more inland through woods, open...More

The Great Ocean Walk covers sand, grass, paved and rocky tracks - make sure your boots and camping gear are well worn in. Allow for variable weather regardless of season. Some of the campsites are at the far end of the beach which requires some...More

beautiful beach right next to the ocean road at apollo bay. The park next to it is a must visit. One can get some takeaway from the restaurants nearby and eat at the park. You may get some seagulls for company, but its quite awesome

We went there on Sunday, many group tour everywhere. Most came from China. We went there rest a moment only, not for a walk, mainly for a visit of Twelve Apostles.

Cape otway light house is a good point to work from as there are several short walks radiating from it towards the beaches and the areas where it is quite easy to spot koalas in the wild ! The 12 apostles are worth a visit... More
