Experience The Great Ocean Walk with Jono Ingram from Good Times Tours

G’day my name is Jono Ingram and I run a small tour business called Good Times Tours that specialises in small group private tours throughout Victoria. Over the last several years I’ve run dozens of hiking tours along Victoria’s Great Ocean Walk. The 104km coastal trail that starts from the popular coastal village of Apollo Bay and finishes at the 12 Apostles. Along the trail there is 7 dedicated hike-in campgrounds however there is also some fantastic accommodation options for those couples or groups looking to stay in accommodation along the way.

Whilst I provide a camping option for my guests that typically utilises Bimbi Park, there is a number of fantastic accommodation options along the trail that I have listed below –

Please note the list of accommodation below is in order of the trail from Apollo Bay to towards the 12 Apostles.

Cape Otway Accommodation

Bimbi Park – Has multiple accommodation options to suit couples all the way up to large groups looking to enjoy the Great Ocean Walk. It’s a fantastic spot and when they you are “camping under the Koalas” they really mean it.
