Stage 2 – Elliot Ridge to Blanket Bay

Blanket Bay - Great Ocean Walk

Great Ocean Walk

Elliot Ridge to Blanket Bay



This section of the walk is 13kms long and is mostly on wide 4×4 access roads. Whilst it makes for easy walking, I prefer starting the Great Ocean Walk at Blanket Bay. Unfortunately I dont have any images from this section of the trail, however if you search online there are some fantastic articles by keen hikers.
