Great Ocean Walk Customer Experiences

Fantastic girls weekend!

"We had a girls weekend away and loved every minute of it. We thoroughly enjoyed being looked after by our guide Eric and driver Lee who fed and watered us at plentiful intervals with fresh, healthy food and occasional surprise treats. The scenery is spectacular and appreciating the Great Ocean flora and fauna is best done on foot because of the details, immersion in nature and the exposure to the history of the area. Fantastic experience!"

Very impressed!

"On my first ever long walk I was guided and supported by Eric and Lee from RAW Travel who made it into such an interesting and achievable walk. We were well looked after both physically and for catering. No request was too trivial or demanding to be considered. I didn’t want the walk to finish and I am looking forward to my next walk with RAW Travel in Japan later this year. Very impressed."

Great training for the Camino

"I completed the RAW Travel Great Ocean Walk in preparation for the Camino. What a great few days of walking with our guides Eric, Lee and Sandra from RAW Travel. If anyone has the chance, this is a great preparation walk to test out gear and chat about the trip. I now feel so much more confident."

TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS WALK!

The trip was very well organised and I felt at all times that the people in charge, particularly Eric, were in tune with the needs of the group and committed to our wellbeing. The food was of a high standard and my dietary needs were well met. The inclusion of the local experts added knowledge and interest to the tour. I would particularly like to thank Eric for his care of us. I would totally recommend this walk to anyone. "

DELIGHTFUL COMPANY OF FELLOW TRAVELLERS

"Thank you for a memorable trip on the Great Ocean Walk. It was a holiday I will not forget. As an older person (age 77) I was a little concerned I would be able to keep up with other people but I need not have worried because the kind and helpful leaders extended every bit of encouragement I needed. Every aspect of the holiday was professionally conducted: delicious meals, comfy beds, timely transport in our van, interesting guides (I particularly appreciated the input from our Aboriginal expert) and optional withdrawal times when I needed a break. The ‘icing on the cake’ was the delightful company of my fellow travellers."

BEST COASTAL WALK I HAVE EVER DONE!

"We had five strong women on this trip and the two RAW lads dealt with us with great patience and good humour. The accommodation at Bimbi Park was fantastic. This was probably the best coastal walk I have done."

ALL I HAD TO THINK ABOUT WAS WALKING

"An extremely well-organised trek to a beautiful part of our country. Everything was laid on and so well planned. All we had to think about was walking! The guide (Eric) and support crew (Lee) were very experienced, helpful and very funny which added to the ambience of an already amazing group of travelling partners. Just a fabulous trip. Cannot speak more highly of RAW. Thank you."

A MUST-DO TRIP!

"Just completed a 110km hike along the Great Ocean Road with Eric from RAW Travel. Highly recommend both the route and the itinerary. Both Eric and Lee from RAW Travel provided expertise beyond our expectations. Excellent historic and cultural insights provided by local speakers Mark and Richard. A must-do trip for all travellers seeking a little adventure."

ABSOLUTE SERENITY

"I loved the nature and absolute serenity of this walk. To experience beaches and picturesque nature that are not only off the beaten track but not known by many was fabulous. Mark, the local guide, who shared some of his amazing knowledge during this walk was fabulous. I learnt science, history and local information from him. The food at Bimbi Park was fabulous - home-made dinners of whole fish and lamb chops - really good grub. Bimbi Park is a nice place to rest at the end of the day. Both guides were helpful and Lee added a few laughs with his regular photo bombs!"

5-STAR EXPERIENCE!

"On this 3-day guided walk with Eric and Lee from RAW Travel, everything had been thought of in terms of food, accommodation and transport. Eric tailored the walk to the fitness of the 6 participants (a great bunch of people). Frank at Bimbi park provided our very welcome meals each morning and evening. Nice touches with trackside drinks at the end of days 2 and 3. Will use RAW again - we didn’t have a single thing to worry about. The walk itself is stunning with lots of historical and geographical knowledge provided along the way. A 5-star experience!"

TRULY MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE

"My wife and I completed the 6-day Great Ocean Walk with RAW Travel. We had an exceptional time with our guide Eric and driver Lee. They made this a truly memorable trip. We were also fortunate to have had a diverse group of walkers (10 in total) who were roughly similar in fitness and a lot of fun. We walked the Camino some years ago with RAW Travel; both walks were terrific and well organised. The scenery is magnificent: spectacular ocean views, beach walks, forest walks. Also enjoyed the history of the Cape Otway Lighthouse with Mark and a talk on local Aboriginal heritage and culture by Richard. Our stay at Bimbi Park was memorable with great food and conversation provided by Frank."
