We offer safety and local support, including RAW's private transfer vehicle, plus EPIRBs (beacons) and comprehensive trip notes for self-guided walkers, and a satellite phone if you're with a group.

Talks with local experts

Our group trips feature informative talks from a local shipwreck historian born in the Cape Otway lighthouse and a local Indigenous cultural guide. The insights they provide to our clients are a highlight of our trips along the Great Ocean Walk and make this adventure even more worthwhile and memorable.

A walk of wild and wonderful discovery

I loved everything about our walk. It far exceeded our expectations. Our guide Eric was fantastic. Everything was well planned and went like clockwork.

Highly recommend both the route & the itinerary. Trip is structured to allow all ages to complete with minimum preparation. Both Eric & Lee from Raw Travel provided expertise beyond our expectations. Excellent historic & cultural insights provided by local speakers Mark & Richard. A must do trip for all travellers seeking a little adventure

Matthew Meredith, Gold Coast April 2017

My sister and I loved the walk, the people who walked with us and the whole experience. Eric was the best guide, great pace, super well organised and attention to detail faultless.

Laurine Gaston, April 2016

A fantastic experience from start to finish. Eric and Lee’s local knowledge and expertise ensured we saw the best the coast had to offer. Eric worked tirelessly from dawn to dusk making breakfast, walking with us the returning to provide us with a hearty post walk dinner.  I can highly recommend RAW travel and their guides Eric and Lee who made our trip a fun challenging experience with memories to last a lifetime

Each day on the Great Ocean Walk promises varied terrain and spectacular views. Take in the breathtaking coastal scenery from the Cape Otway Light Station and the Gibson Steps all the way to the 12 Apostles. Deserted wild beaches, sheer cliffs, shipwrecks, giant mountain ash forests, pristine river estuaries, abundant wildlife, dunes and coastal heathlands all await you on this exciting adventure.
