Sensational experience! Breathtaking scenery and beautiful wild animal viewings!
We did a little research on the internet and found Walk 91 to be the best provider to suit our needs, as it offered shorter walks of 5 days, and that was exactly what we were looking for! The itinerary was perfectly planned, adjusted to our needs and wishes. We were provided with a very accurate map, where you could easily follow your way on the GOW. We were also provided with a descriptive and detailed itinerary on how the walk would be, with a track grading (easy-medium-hard), so we were always well prepared to what was to be expected.
The trail was very well signed, too, and the meeting spots where we were to be picked up were well described in the itinerary. We have to admit- everything was perfect! We felt very safe due to the good description, the provided mobile phone and the epirb. And the lunch packet was great!!! The team of Walk 91 was very attentive and obliging. All the accommodations were wonderful and we felt we could really relax when we arrived there. Everything was perfectly organised and the hosts were really kind and welcoming.
The walk was amazing! The scenery and landscape were amazing and we were able to see kangaroos, wallabies, koalas and many beautiful birds. It was incredible! Every day was fulfilling and satisfactory. The trail was well signed and the Parks Victoria grading for each day was pretty accurate. There is only one section of the walk, that we think Parks Victoria could improve and that is the last part of the trail “Castle Cove to Milanesia Gate”, which is on the main car road, so that there are some cars passing by.
Our tips are: bring some good shoes, water bottles and a camera and enjoy the Great Ocean Walk! It’s totally worth it!
