Great Ocean Walk & Great Ocean Road – 2 Day Tour

Great Ocean Walk & Great Ocean Road – 2 Day Tour – March 2020

Below is imagery from a recent trip I did with Rob and Brenda from the USA. We drove the Great Ocean Road and then completed a 2 day (32km) walk along the Great Ocean Walk from Blanket Bay to Johanna Beach. For most of the walk they were self-guided, however I did walk the coastal route from Parker Inlet to Point Franklin with them just to make sure they were fine. In the evening we camped at Aire River West campground and relaxed by the campfire. On day 2 they walked 12.5km’s to Johanna Beach and I met them along the trail at Castle Cove to make sure they were fine for food/water/sunscreen etc. before they tackled the remaining section. Once they finished at Johanna Beach, we went to the nearby Melba Gully to experience the Otways rainforest before driving further along the Great Ocean Road to the 12 Apostles.

This personalised private tour is a fantastic way for international guests to experience both the Great Ocean Road whilst also enjoying the best sections of our iconic Great Ocean Walk.

Soaking in the scenery at Castle Cove where the trail meets the Great Ocean Road for the only time along it’s 100km route from Apollo Bay to the 12 Apostles. It’s here that I’m able to meet guests who have walked 5.5kms (usually around 1.5 to 2hrs) from Aire River and ensure they have enough water, food, sunscreen etc.
