Day walks

Got time to spend a whole day on the trail? Those looking for walking routes of up to six hours in length will find plenty to choose from along the 104-kilometre Great Ocean Walk. Aire River, Cape Otway and Shelly Beach are all great places to start. Make use of local shuttle services, available for pick up and drop off between or accommodation, or choose one of the return walks, accessible from the parks' main visitor nodes. The time, distance and terrain make these walks more challenging than the short walks.
