Is this trip right for you?
  • This is a 104km walking trip so you will need to have good physical fitness to fully enjoy it. On Days 2 and 3 we will walk over 19km each day so you will need to be confident that you can walk this distance two days in a row. Walking along the Great Ocean Road means different terrain from sandy beaches to rocky paths. You must bring appropriate footwear and clothing to be able to tackle these famous paths. Please note that the itinerary may change depending on local conditions and the weather.
  • This trip is operated and run by Inspiration Outdoors, an Intrepid Company. You will be travelling with a mixture of both Inspiration Outdoors customers and Intrepid customers. Intrepid works closely with Inspiration Outdoors to ensure that all of our customers enjoy their time away.
  • There is some driving included in each day as you will mostly be based in Johanna, rather than in a new place each night. Therefore, we need to drive to the start and then from the end of each day’s walking.

Hiking the great Ocean road was one of the most difficult things I've done but it was such an incredible experience. The scenery of the coast and inland forests were absolutely exquisite. The trip was only made better by our guides Geof and Camble who were so knowledgeable, fun and easy going. It's also important to note how great the food was, Geof and Camble were incredible chefs and the food was way beyond what I was expecting for a trip like this. I'd highly recommend this trip to anyone looking for an adventure in nature.
