The Great Ocean Walk

The Great Ocean Walk is an odyssey of 90 kms that starts at Apollo Bay and runs almost to the 12 Apostles. You can sample the differing aspects of the walk by taking short walks designed in loops.
Shelly Beach circuit walk is a 10 minute drive south of Apollo Bay. It is an easy walk of 45 minutes mixing fern gullies with some wonderful ocean and beach outlooks.
The Otway Lighthouse cemetery and lookout walk is a 20 minute drive from Shelly beach. It's an easy 40 minute walk taking in the cliffs of Cape Otway.
The Aire River Escarpment Lookout walk is about 30 minutes further south and shows a very different side of the coast. This medium difficulty walk of 2 hours takes you along the Aire River Estuary and wetlands, into sand dunes and the beach.
The Gable Lookout Walk is an hour's drive from Apollo Bay. It is an easy 20 minute walk to the lookout platform built out from the cliffs; one of the most spectacular outlooks anywhere on the Shipwreck Coast.
Wreck Beach walk is near Moonlight Head and by far the toughest of the short walks. Descending over 300 steps to the beach, your reward is the anchors of shipwrecks embedded in the reefs.
