Great Otway Walking Tracks


The Otways are a very special place, the tall wet tree ferns, ancient rainforests, and amazing wildflowers. All of this is fringed by a spectacular coastline.


The Great Ocean Walk starts from the beautiful town of Apollo Bay and goes all the way to Glenample Homestead, which is right near the 12 Apostles.


Passing through the National Park, it also overlooks the Marine National Park. The walk has been designed so that walkers can 'step on and step off' the trail at a number of places, completing short, day or overnight hikes.


Some other things that you can do here are horse riding, biking, picnics and camping.
