Experience the rugged coastlines of Victoria on your own two feet
Discover the dramatic scenery of Victoria’s South West, from rocky sea cliffs to remote bushland, on this 5-day walking trip of the region. White sandy beaches littered with shells, petrified forests, limestone caves and the beautifully secluded Cape Nelson lighthouse are some of the highlights you can expect to encounter. Not to mention the wildlife – from emus, koalas, kangaroos and seal colonies, as well as a staggering variety of seasonal orchids and wildflowers which enhance the forest floor. Your local leader will help you uncover all the natural wonders of one of the states’ most underrated regions.
Take a First Nations guided tour of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Budj Bim Cultural Landscape site.
Follow a scenic path above the Glenelg River, admiring limestone gorges below and looking out for native wildlife along the way.

Visit Australia’s only mainland gannet colony at Point Danger Coastal Reserve.

This trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
