Exclusive 4 day, 3 night luxury guided walks

From pocket-sized fern gullies to humbling sea stacks, the 12 Apostles Lodge Walk is an elemental journey. There is good reason the Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles are known the world over. But few experience this chiselled coastline on foot. Why do so? Because the symphony of ancient seas, sand and rock are more audible. Because traversing windswept cliffs at a pace fitting of nature’s raw spectacle is worth every kilometre.

The 12 Apostles Lodge Walk is a multi-day passage from Castle Cove to the Twelve Apostles, covering 40 kilometres through Great Otway and Port Campbell National Parks. With an intimate group of no more than 10, head west through wetlands, across wild beaches, rocky headlands and through deep forested valleys. A knowledgeable eco-guide takes every step with you – sharing snippets about flora, shipwrecks or the rock shelf where dinosaurs roamed a primordial coastline.

Return from the trail each day to your private eco-lodge. Some three hours from Melbourne, this is where our staff prepare healthy and  nourishing meals. It’s where rainforest showers await, foot spas blend well with local wine in hand and crisp sheets follow long table dinners.

So go on, let the Southern Ocean work its cleaning ways as your constant neighbour. Feel strangers become firm friends around the lodge fire over canapes. And over four days, experience the slow reveal of those mighty Apostles.

We’ll let you in on a secret.  It’s not the walking that’s the best part of the Twelve Apostles Lodge Walk, or any walk for that matter.  It’s the finishing.  Not in a “thank goodness that’s over!” kind of way.  It’s the feeling at the end when you’ve done it.  And you know you’ve done it.  You’ve surprised and enjoyed yourself and made yourself proud of….you.

In the beginning, it might seem hard to find four days in a busy schedule to go for a walk: At the end you’ll be wondering why it’s only four days. View the walk itinerary.

The Twelve Apostles Lodge Walk brings together only ten like-minded people at a time, peels away the stress, importance and busyness of every day, fills you with clean, lovely air and puts life back on track, one step at a time. Nourished daily with choice morsels prepared by chef and encouraged on trail by our nurturing eco-guides, you will be brave and fearless in the pursuit of adventure.  Our many good deeds remind how much you needed this.

Our walkers are the privileged few.  With space for less than 900 people a year, this not a super-highway.  And each year, those places fill faster as people from all ‘round the world place greater value on the precious time and space we Australians often take for granted. Check our latest trip prices and availability. Alternatively, buy a gift voucher for someone special and make their day!

So, go on.  Be it a walk of celebration at a special time in your life, alone, together or with friends, or perhaps a time to reflect and just be, we put a lot of effort into the curation of our walk so your Twelve Apostles Lodge Walk will be worth walking for.
