Great Ocean Walk + Grampians with the Super Crew

12 Apostles on the Great Ocean Road with the Super Crew.

3 Day Great Ocean Road + Great Ocean Walk + Grampians Adventure

See imagery below from a fantastic few days with my new favourite American family who booked me in so they could experience the Great Ocean Walk. The original plan was to do 2 days on the GOW and then bounce back to Melbourne to explore the Yarra Valley but once we were down at Aire River West campground after day 1 on the Great Ocean Walk, I raised the idea of visiting the Grampians and they were keen to make it happen.

The photos below are from hiking the Great Ocean Walk from Blanket Bay to Johanna Beach (arguably Victoria’s best overnight coastal hike) and an afternoon visiting the 12 Apostles before camping in the Grampians, hiking the Pinnacles Lookout and then finishing the trip with a visit to Best’s and Seppelt wineries in Great Western.
