Take a break from the December chaos and reconnect with nature, sleep under the stars and wake up to the most beautiful scenery.

There is nothing like Australia’s Great Ocean Walk located on the Great Ocean Road region between Apollo Bay and the iconic Twelve Apostles, hugging the coastline for more than 100km. On this 3 day section around Cape Otway, you can feel nature’s drama unfolding at every step, and every day is different.

Create your own unique experience and discover this section of wonderful Australian coastline as you walk beneath tall trees, across rock seashore platforms, along deserted beaches and soak in breathtaking cliff-top vistas. Join a wonderful group to explore this excellent scenery, enjoy the beautiful sunsets and revive yourself in nature.

This is a fully supported and guided hike, with some of TSA’s best guides.
