I think the Great Ocean Walk itinerary is terrific with great flexibility to suit every walker – their ability and their time frame… we loved it. Challenging enough, and great variety of bush, track and scenery… The tracks are a credit to Parks Vic…
(However, if I was to be critical, there are not quite enough signs, and the weeds need to be controlled. Perhaps a few more seats would be good too.) – see walk 91 comments below….
I was comfortable in that it wasn’t over managed, but I could imagine that some people would want to be told or shown exactly what and when and how, e.g. where to stop for lunch, when to stop for a rest etc.
Our tips would be…. Prepare for the hills and do plenty of practice walks – not just around the block!!
We are very happy you enjoyed your Great Ocean Walk…and it was fantastic to see some of the wonderful pictures you sent us. We will add them to our library!
Parks Victoria are nearly ready to place their new signage on the track. They will have more information on the area and its history and also ‘km’ markers so that walkers know how far they have to walk on each section ….and can therefore pace themselves a little easier on the track,
