The adventure begins as you meet your guides and fellow travellers in Melbourne. From there, we embark on a road trip filled with anticipation.
The day's walk takes you through some of the most scenic sections of the Great Ocean Walk. From tranquil eucalypt forests to the majestic cliffs overlooking the sea onto pristine sandy beaches and the iconic Cape Otway Lighthouse, you'll be captivated by the beauty of your surroundings. As you walk, breathe in the fresh ocean air and savour the feeling of being truly immersed in nature.
In the afternoon, we return to our private eco-lodge nestled in rainforest surrounds. Our host meets you with canapes and champagne before serving a long-table dinner starring Apollo Bay seafood and fresh local produce.
Approximately 3.5 hours walking
After a restful night's sleep and a hearty breakfast, we set off on another day of exploration. This time, we meander through native stringybark forest, where the scent of eucalyptus fills the air. If the tide allows, we descend onto Wreck Beach,a hidden gem that forms part of a treacherous coastline rich in maritime history and responsible for some 180 shipwrecks over the years. After lunch, we visit the enchanting rainforest trail of Melba Gully with towering Mountain Ash and Beech Myrtle with an understory of tree ferns and a soundscape of flowing waterfalls.
Back at our private eco-lodge, you'll have the opportunity to relax and rejuvenate with a soothing foot bath. Sip on bubbles and enjoy canapés before another delicious meal, perfectly complemented by local wines and beers. It's an evening of connection where we share tales of the trails before retiring to comfortable beds for a restful sleep.
Approximately 3 hours walking
As you savour another wholesome breakfast, the anticipation builds for the final leg of your journey. Today, we head to the Twelve Apostles, a collection of magnificent natural wonders that emerge slowly as the trail rises and falls. You'll know you've reached your destination when you arrive at the exclusive viewing platform reserved for walkers. Take in the breathtaking views and marvel at the sheer beauty of these iconic formations.
We then move on to a well-deserved lunch, rounding off our produce story at our local suppliers at Schulz Dairy before returning to Melbourne. Your journey along the Great Ocean Road has come full circle, leaving you with memories that will last a lifetime.
