Walking

The Great Ocean Road region is a natural for walking, hiking, rambling and ambling, whatever your ability or experience level. There’s no better way to communicate with nature and check out the scenery than to lace up your comfy shoes, strap on a backpack and hit the trail.

As well as the Great Ocean Road’s iconic walks, there are the town walks in each destination, walks that will allow you to discover Rail Trails, Museums, Historical and Heritage Listed Buildings and more. Call into a Visitor Information Centre to pick up your copy of the towns’ map and chat to a local.

There’s no better way to enjoy the coast, the countryside or the township.

Don’t pinch yourself this place really does exist. Bells Beach in winter = pure magic. 🏄‍♂️

Greatopia’s answer to a seafood-lovers haven, the Apollo Bay region should be top of your list of places to visit. Experience some of the best ‘off the boat’ local catch from the ‘Bay’s’ selection of restaurants and cafés . 

Local tip: The @apollobayfishcoop offers great view and local crayfish. The @apollobaydistillery is the perfect place for a cheeky sundown.

Let Greatopia inspire you. 

Venture deep into the Otways to Lake Elizabeth where you can hike, camp or Kayak. - Wake up early and you might even spot the elusive platypus in the waters of the lake at dawn. #Greatopia
