Thank you to Mark and everyone, we enjoyed our walk very much and would throughly recommend it to friends. We enjoyed our 3 nights of accommodation after each day of the walk, and also the lovely meals.
We heard about Walk 91 on the internet. Mark was really helpful organising our transport from Melbourne and Avalon.
We thought that the food was sensational, the accommodation was really good, even the YHA.
The walk was great – we really enjoyed it. Lots of diversity. Make sure you bring fly nets though. You were all wonderful
I would definitely recommend Walk 91 to other walkers!
Annie and I would like to thank you for the great holiday – we enjoyed taking the Great Ocean Road.
The background material you supplied was terrific and the organisation, including pick ups etc were really seamless. For your side of things, we think you have got a great product and would throughly recommend you to our friends, and in fact we have already done so.
We are home now after a really enjoyable walking experience. Each day brought different challenges as well as magnificent views.
Our last day was quite a day, with gusty winds and a couple of hours rain to finish. Of course visibility was reduced. However as it was the dullest part of the Great Ocean Walk we didn’t feel cheated.
We read of Walk 91 from a Parks Victoria brochure. Your format suited us in that other organised trips were not conducting their walks at a time suitable to us. Your package worked very well for us. We were happy with the planning of the itinerary and the accommodation was excellent. Each of our hosts were exemplary. Food provided for the evening meal, breakfast and for lunch was really excellent – you have chosen them well!
Great Ocean Walk meeting spots were readily identifiable. We were pleasantly suprised on most days that we came across them earlier than we had anticipated. The walk itself was challenging and rewarding. The scenery was just great. Overall a great experience.
The planning of our Great Ocean Walk was excellent with accurate details. The co-ordination worked well with all the various people – collecting, delivering and the accommodation.
There were no problems finding the meeting spots – the photographs given clearly showed the meeting places. There were wonderful views from Milanesia Beach to Moonlight Head!!
Thank you for all your help in organising our walk. We really enjoyed the excellent accommodation and hospitality of our hosts.
Our itinerary was planned efficiently, with comprehensive information supplied. The walk over 6 days was a good way to do it.
Moving accommodation as we did was far better than staying in one place for the whole walk and having long drives each day. The accommodation was excellent and the hosts very helpful.
All the meals and lunches were excellent. Finding the Great Ocean Walk meeting spots each day were no problem at all the walking times conservative but that is okay.
We did not see one snake even though it was warm others said they saw lots. Our tips for other walkers are ‘Enjoy it!’, and take plenty of water if it is hot.
I have already recommended Walk 91 to several people.
The planning of our Great Ocean Walk was good and daily distances were reasonable.
The food at the accommodation was very good. The scenery was magnificent.
A very special walk and the snakes were exciting! Thanks Mark – it was a very good experience and one we will remember!
Our Great Ocean Walk was well organised. The walk was excellent. Five days was a good length for us.
However Parks Victoria could improve their signposting so walkers know how long each section is. Many thanks!
We had a great trip – scenery and accommodation were great. We will be sure to recommend to friends
The Great Ocean Walk was brilliant!
Beautiful location, amazing scenery and wildlife.
Had an excellent time!
Remember insect repellent for the flies!!
We had a great time. It was fantastic. A wonderful family holiday.
The itinerary was done well. We were happy about the rest day and suggest that you recommend that to people we consider ourselves to be pretty fit but were quite tired at the end.
Our favourite place to stay was the conservation centre where we had the best food. The next B&B was lovely. The hosts were friendly without being intrusive and the accommodation arrangements suited us perfectly.
The information pack was great
Our tips for walkers:
– Consider building in a rest day;
– Two of us walked in runners which was fine as it was fairly dry and the path is so well established but next time I would bring proper walking boots.
– For kids: make sure their boots have been well worn in. Blisters are probably inevitable no matter how well worn the shoes are so carry proper blister dressings.
– Also for kids: they also need to be “walked in” beforehand: at least a few long walks a week (min. 10km) for at least a month. This is how we prepared our two seven year olds and they did marvellously but we would have had a miserable time with them if they had not put in the hard work beforehand. I do note recommend the walk for children of this age unless they are (i) very enthusiastic; (ii) easily motivated; and (iii) have been properly prepared.
– We saw a number of snakes.
– Walkers should carry a good first aid kit that contains a compression bandage.
Thanks for all. We would not have missed it for the world!
