Great Ocean Walk
There is nothing like the Great Ocean Walk located on the Great Ocean Road region between Apollo Bay and the iconic Twelve Apostles, the trail follows the coastline for more than 100km. Admire this spectacular coast and the changes in landscape each day.

Great Ocean Road
Experience some of the best surf in Victoria for advanced riders along the Great Ocean Road. From Bird Rock, the world-renowned Bells Beach, Winki Pop, Centreside or Cathedral Rock. Along the coast, between Lorne and Apollo Bay, there are good surf spots at Cumberland River, Wye River, Baldy Rock, Skene's Creek, Sawmills and Kennett River.



Hopetoun Falls
Hopetoun Falls offers spectacular views of the falls as they cascade into the Aire River. Or for a different view take the steeper walk down to the pool at the base of the falls. The walk starts from the carpark located on the Aire Valley Road in Beech Forest.

Beauchamp Falls
Beauchamp Falls crashes dramatically over a ledge into a large pool. The 20-metre waterfall is quite the reward after the walk in. The three-kilometre track is an hour's walk return. The descent to the falls leads to a viewing platform. The path back is steep and has steps that can be slippery when wet.

Melba Gully
Melba Gully (Madsen's Track) is one of the wettest places in the state. The gully has lush plant growth and is a dense rainforest of Myrtle Beech, Blackwood and Tree-ferns, with low ferns and mosses. The Madsen's Track Nature Walk is an exploration into a world of ancient, mossy trees and temperate fern gullies. This short walk is a good spot to see the remarkable glow worms at night.
