Day 2:

Today’s section has some of the most spectacular coastal views of the entire track. It’s also a great day for wildflowers with colourful heathlands and numerous grass trees. In the winter months there are native orchids and masses of pink heath – Victoria’s floral emblem. Another highlight is the long, white, sandy expanse of Johanna Beach.

Accommodation: Castle Cove / Aire Valley

 

Day 3:

Milanesia Beach is one of those secret beaches not many people get to and what a special place it is! From here the track continues along the cliff tops and you can see all the way back to Cape Otway lighthouse. High sea cliffs, breathtaking views and coastal forests lead you to Moonlight Head.

Accommodation: Princetown area

 

Day 4:

The first highlight today is The Gables Lookout, perched on one of the highest sea cliffs in mainland Australia. This is a superb spot for whale watching between June and September. Continue through a grove of casuarinas to Wreck Beach where the remains of two shipwrecks can be inspected. Today’s walk finishes at the impressive 12 Apostles, a group of limestone sea stacks that are constantly changing.

Accommodation: Port Campbell

 

Day 5:

After breakfast you will be transported back to Apollo Bay (if you arrived by car) or to Camperdown for public transport connections.
