Location on the Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia.
History & Landscape
You can learn about the Wautherong people and how they live/d, and discover
the history of this shipwreck-strewn coast, its lighthouses and early
settlers. You can experience the unique creatures of the Marine National
Parks along the way, journeying along precipitous escarpments and sandy
beaches of the coastal heathlands.
Enjoy the cool, lush rainforests born in the time of Gondwana when Tasmania
was connected to this coastline. Ancient Mountain Ash, Myrtle Beech and
huge Tree-ferns glisten after rain. The unique heathlands, eucalypts and
rainforests with their suites of animals can be explored along the way.
We pride ourselves on our knowledge of the geography, geology and biology
of this coastline.
Wildlife and Plants
Our approach is to stop to smell the flowers and to spot the echidna rather
than to race to a destination. You choose the walk that suits your needs.
You are likely to see some of the following wildlife and plants:
Eastern Grey Kangaroos, Black Wallabies, Echidnas, King Parrots, Rufus
Bristle birds, Peregrine Falcons, Gannets, Singing Honeyeaters, Crimson
Rosellas, Gang Gang Cockatoos, Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoos, Wedge-tailed
Eagles, White-bellied Sea-eagles. It is also possible to see Crested Terns,
Sooty Oystercatchers and Penguins.
Also look out for seals, dolphins or even migrating whales between June
At night, owls, possums, bats and gliders can be seen.
