There is nothing like getting away from it all.
Camping on the Great Ocean Walk is the perfect way to enjoy the trail’s natural beauty.
Because all hikers walk east to west, the walk never feels crowded and you can sometimes walk the whole day feeling like you are the only person on the track.
The Great Ocean Walk hike-in-campsites are secluded and small, often tucked away amongst the coastal heath and gum trees. With a table to eat, a shelter and toilet facilities carved out of local timber, you have all you need for a unique camping experience.
Don’t want to carry all your heavy gear? No problem. Walk 91 will meet you at the start of your walk and collect all your gear in their trailer. They move the trailer ahead of you on the walk leaving it at the accessible campsites.
You just need to plan what yummy food will be waiting for you at your campsite and Walk 91 will supply fresh drinking water (the water is not drinkable on the track).
If you are traveling light to this wonderful part of Australia, Walk 91 can hire you all the camping gear you will need.
