    Head out of Melbourne for a four day guided walking tour that will lead you on a trek through all the highlights of the Great Ocean Road. You'll cover about 40km, staying in the Cape Otway Lightstation Cottages for three nights with four action-packed days of exploring.

    During your four days of walking you'll soak up the beaches, coves, and incredible cliff top vistas along the iconic 105km Great Ocean Road coastal trail. Depart Melbourne in the morning and head to Apollo Bay for an afternoon walk from Marengo Beach, through the Otway forest to Shelly Beach (2-2.5 hours, 7km, easy grade). Enjoy a delicious two-course meal at Cape Otway Lightstation before settling in for the night.

    On day two you'll head out for a walk from your accommodation past Aire River to take in the lookout and continuing on to Castle Cove, where the beach is surrounded by spectacular cliffs. (4.5-5 hours, 16km, moderate grade). On day three you''ll walk from Milanesia Beach, past Ryan's Den and over Cape Volney to Moonlight Head, with the option of walking on to the Gables (6-8 hours, 12km, moderate grade).

    On day four you'll follow the cliff lines of the Great Ocean walk and finish at the iconic Twelve Apostles. Starting above the wetlands around Princetown, you'll head through the Gellibrand River Estuary and into Port Campbell National Park to end up at the Twelve Apostles Visitor Centre (2.5-3 hours, 8.5km, moderate grade).
