Great Ocean Walk

Cape Otway Cottages is perfectly positioned to be the very best Great Ocean Walk accommodation for those exploring this iconic walk.

The Great Ocean Walk, on Victoria’s spectacular west coast, stretches 96 kms from the idyllic resort town of Apollo Bay, to within sight of the magnificent 12 Apostles. Weave through beautiful National Parks, walk deserted beaches and gaze over pristine marine sanctuaries. Step on and off the trail with convenience; enjoy comfortable accommodation and excellent local meals or pitch your tent at wildly picturesque spots along the way.

The track hugs coastline which is not always visible from the Great Ocean Road and traverses an area which hosts koalas,wallabiesechidnasreptiles, and many bird species.From June through September, whales can be spotted along the coastline. The track passes through several named areas; including Elliot Ridge, Blanket Bay, Cape OtwayAire RiverJohanna Beach, Ryans Den and Devils Kitchen.

The difficulty of the track increases along the walk; with the section between Apollo Bay and Cape Otway suitable for beginners, becoming more challenging when reaching the rugged terrain through Ryans Den. In addition, travellers need to note that sections of track can be dangerous or impassable at high tide. 

Cape Otway Cottages offer the very best Great Ocean Walk accommodation located only 5 minutes drive from the Aire River step on/off point.
