Frequently Asked Questions on the Great Ocean Walk
How long is the Great Ocean Walk and where does it start and end?
The walk is 104kms long, but the campsites cover approx 100km as a more direct route (as you do not need to walk in and out to meeting spots). It starts in Apollo Bay on the foreshore (on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia) and ends at the 12 Apostles. There is no track to Port Campbell.
Is Great Ocean Road Shuttle a local business?
Yes, Great Ocean Road Shuttle is run by locals who have worked and lived in the area for years.
Originally Great Ocean Road Shuttle was set up and owned by Abby Usas, who sadly passed away in 2016. Abby loved the Great Otway National Park and lived in the heart of the bush at Cape Otway. Walk 91, owned by an ex-local ranger who lives in Apollo Bay, has taken over Great Ocean Road Shuttle to run alongside their self-guided Great Ocean Walk inn to inn walking packages.
Great Ocean Road Shuttle’s drivers are all locals who have lived in Apollo Bay for years. They are looking forward to meeting you and driving you through the beautiful Great Otway National Park!
Water on the Great Ocean Walk?
There is no drinking water on the trail, only untreated rainwater tanks, so bring your own water or water purification tablets. Do not presume that the water tanks will be full, however. If it has not rained much they may be empty so keep this is mind when planning your walk.
