Great Ocean Walk

Postby fixa » Fri 21 Sep, 2018 7:14 pm

Howdy all!

So i'm doing the Great Ocean Wlak this november, cannot wait. Is anyone else doing it around this time> I'm starting on the 16th Nov.

Quick Question: Is there bins along the way? No biggie, working out logistics...

Also happy to hear stories / tips etc. Planning on doing Blanket bay fort day, then Cape Otwya, johanna / Ryans / Devils.

Cheers!

No bins. Check track notes reports Victoria. Some of my thoughts there.

Maybe at the Cape Otway lighthouse?

From memory there were no bins available at Cape Otway either, at least on the park side of the shop. I imagine there are bins inside the lighthouse facility but you have to pay the entrance fee to get in there.

Hi Fixa I'm planning to do the walk in November as well. Was thinking of driving my car to Princetown leaving my car there and taking the 10.15 am bus to Apollo Bay to start the walk. Any takers ?

Yep, was planning on leaving mine at the 12 apostles carpark. What dates are you thinking?
