Great Ocean Walk

Great Ocean Walk – Day Walks

Option 1: Aire River to Johanna Beach

Start: Aire River information shelter

End: Johanna Beach campground

This is a long but satisfying walk through diverse terrain to beautiful Johanna Beach. Pass through heathland with spring wildflowers and experience awesome sea views. Look out for Peregrine Falcons flying above. Johanna River is unbridged so carefully assess before wading across.

Option 2: Cape Otway to Aire River

Start: Cape Otway

End: Aire River

Explore the lightstation before you set out. The walk to Aire River carves its way through a wind sculpted landscape of sand dunes, coastal scrubland and calcified cliffs. Rainbow Falls and Station Beach are a 3 kilometre return journey. Rainbow Falls is spring-fed and trickles through algae to the rock platform below. Take the main track over Station Beach or the beach route to Aire River lookout.
