Great Ocean Road
It’s a four-hour drive from Melbourne and 100 kilometres past the end of the Great Ocean Road and actually has the only seal watching cage in the World… to keep the sharks out of course! It’s a little town that’s big on life and experiences. It has the Cape Nelson lighthouse and The Great South West Walk starts here.
The Great South West Walk has been developed as a bushwalking trail suitable for most ages and abilities comprising short 2 hour loop walks, full day walks, or for the intrepid, the whole 250km loop that begins and ends at the Maritime Discovery and Visitor Information Centre in Portland Victoria, Australia.
This unforgettable experience winds around 3 National Parks, hardwood forests, the pristine Glenelg River, the picturesque township of Nelson, aboriginal heritage sites, the mighty Southern Ocean and vast sand dunes, sandy bays and beaches, rugged cliffs, freshwater lakes, the Cape Nelson Lighthouse, the stunning Bridgewater Bay and amongst a diversity of natural fauna and flora including Blue and Southern Right Whales, a mainland Fur Seal colony and Australia’s only mainland Australasian Gannet rookery and much more. Much of the GSWW is contained within the recently declared 66th Australian RAMSAR site.
