Experience walking one of Australia’s most stunning sections of coastline while enjoying great accommodation, incredible food and the company of new friends. Each day is different in terms of terrain & spectacular views. Take in breathtaking coastal scenery from the Cape Otway Lightstation, the Gibson Steps all the way through to the 12 Apostles.  Visit deserted wild beaches, sheer cliffs, shipwrecks, giant mountain ash forests, pristine river estuaries, abundant wildlife, dunes and coastal heathlands all await the intrepid hiker on this exciting adventure.

Travel with our team of guides and drivers who have been escorting groups along the trail since its creation. As well as your regular guide these trips include a session with a specialist shipwreck or indigenous guide (or both!). We operate guided trips of varying length throughout the year. Or go self-guided where we look after your accommodation and transfers and enjoy the flexibility of walking at your own pace.
