What You’ll Love…

The Walk – Be at one with nature as you uncover breathtaking scenery and centuries of history

Your experience begins at Castle Cove where you’ll capture a glimpse of the crashing Southern Ocean through the tea trees. As you walk through the forest to Dinosaur Cove, hear stories dating back 104 million years and stand in the spot where dinosaurs would once have roamed.

Encounter rugged headlands and unspoilt remote beauty as you venture through deep gullies and towering eucalyptus trees from the Milanesia Track down to Milanesia Beach, Ryans Den and Cape Volney, where the crashing waves of the ocean disappear into watery caves.

Ascend one of Australia’s highest clifftop lookout points, The Gables, to look out over a stretch where more than 300 ships have wrecked on the shore, and hear the accompanying legends of pillaging and misadventure.

Saved for your last day is the most exceptional experience of the trip: a helicopter flight over the dramatic landscape of the Twelve Apostles. The most famous landmark on the Great Ocean Road, these limestone stacks rise from the sea in a spectacular display from Mother Nature.
