Volcanic Lakes & Plains
Follow meandering roads north from the coast to explore sublime volcanic landscapes and charming inland towns. Enjoy the contrast of conical peaks and deep crater lakes that punctuate the even carpet of rolling farmland. Dry Stone walls dissect the landscape, an aesthetic and practical solution to farm a landscape strewn with scoria. Charming towns with well preserved buildings and tended avenues of elm, oak and plane provide visions of England on volcanic plain.
Great Ocean Walk
The Great Ocean Walk hugs the rugged coastline from Apollo Bay to the 12 Apostles, taking hikers to places never experienced before. The 104km trek traverses sandy beaches, thick forests and some of Australia’s tallest coastal cliffs. Walkers can choose from a variety of off-walk accommodation options and purpose built “hike-in” campsites.
Whatever way you tackle the Great Ocean Walk, a few hours or a few days, it is an experience to remember.
