The Great Ocean Road

We’re going to show you the best of Australia’s Great Ocean Road!

Although we’ve still got a lot more to write and plenty more filming to do, be sure to checkout our ultimate guide to the Great Ocean Road and don’t forget to keep coming back as there’s a lot to come!

Private 2 Person Comfort Camping & Hiking Tours

Spend 4 days and 3 nights on a private guided tour along the Great Ocean Road, Limestone Coast & Grampians National Park tailored to how you want to do it

Spend 4 days and 3 nights on a private guided tour along the Great Ocean Road, Limestone Coast & Grampians National Park tailored to how you want to do it

Each day we’ll take you on a separate hike through some incredible and completely changing terrain. Starting with a wander through an ancient cool-climate rain-forest, followed by bush walks and day hikes along the rugged southern Australian coastline, volcanic Limestone Coast and the rigged mountains within the Grampians National Park.

Spend the first night camping in a national park along the Great Ocean Road, with the following two nights providing more comfort as we set-up camp right near the beach and just next to a small shack with facilities (toilet, shower, kitchen).

We’ll take care of everything, from setting-up the tent to serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks throughout the tour. This is a camping trip, although we do our best to make sure that it’s super comfortable in all conditions.

If you really want the tour without the camping, hiking (..or tougher hikes) or anything else then remember that all of our private tours are tailored to your liking – we can take-out and add-in pretty much anything you want.

4 Day 3 Night tours start from $1,695 AUD per couple.
Includes all meals and snacks, non-alcoholic drinks, accommodation, transport and park fees.

Campsite Reviews

We review the campsites that we visit so that you know where to find them and if they’re worth heading to. So far, we’ve just written about campsites close to where we’re based in Geelong (just near Melbourne, Australia) although we hope to cover much more of Australia then many other parts of the world over the coming months and years.

For now, here are some of our favorite campsites in Victoria, Australia:

Cathedral Range is only about 2 hours from the Melbourne CBD and has everything that you could want for a weekend getaway or even a day trip.

There are two main campsites: Neds Gully and Cooks Mill Campground, both accesible by car although you have to walk over a small bridge to get to Neds.

Surrounded by some great single and multi-day hiking trails and a small river between the two main campgrounds that is fun for cooling off and fishing.

Only about 1-1.5 hours west of Melbourne and 30-45 minutes north of Geelong is the Brisbane Ranges National Park.

There are two main places to camp. Boar Gully has a damn and a bit more privacy, compared to Friday’s which is one large camp site. Both camp grounds have hiking trails leaving from them.

This place can feel pretty remote for such a short distance from the big smoke, making it perfect for weekend trips or day hikes.

Boar Gully Campground Brisbane Rangers

Sitting right behind the incredible world-class Johanna Beach on the Great Ocean Road is well kept, stunning and spacious campground.

3 hours west of Melbourne, dog friendly and perfect for surfing.

Head 45 minutes west to the world-famous 12 Apostles or a short drive east into an ancient cool-climate rain-forest that once was home to dinosaurs and for the last 40,000 years, indigenous tribes.
