Tracks are not well marked and vary from wide well formed tracks to very (very!) narrow and overgrown trails. Need moderate fitness and stable footwear/knees for all the downhill

Check where you are regularly as tracks are not marked well . Some steep sections and watch out for mountain bikes on the smaller trails. Need moderate fitness. We managed to see two lyrebirds, black wallaby and plenty of birds. Good footwear required.

nice walk. easy enough to complete to low fitness levels. sandy roads are well maintained. last quater of the walk will be difficult during high tides. plan to walk through at low tides.
and bring bug spray if walking through summer months.. march flies are a real pain!

We did this in reverse, starting at Point Lonsdale. A gorgeous extremely well marked walk. Ashphalt for 2/3 of the way from the Point Lonsdale end and beach for remainder of walk to the Queensliff lighthouse. The width of the track is great for walking with a group of 3-4 friends. If you have prams or little ones with bikes, it's great for walking the asphalt bit without getting in the way of other walkers/riders. There's also an impressive playground close to the Point Lonsdale end that has shops nearby to grab a coffee and bite to eat.

Heavy traffic . Parking was hard with vehicles parked on both sides of road.very popular spot .best to start early to beat the rush . Views are amazing

Best to start early and bring plenty of water . The views are amazing .

there is a good booklet for the walk for about A$15 that you can buy in Apollo Bay which shows the low tide options if you want to explore some of the beaches and rock platforms. Most of this walk is fantastic but there are a couple of boring bits too that go inland on dirt roads. Great that you see so few people until you get close to The 12 Apostles. If you don't want to camp there is a local company called Walk91 who will transport you off and on the track. Would recommend 6 days but we did it in 5 days. It is very doable in 5 days but felt that there wasn't enough time to explore on two days or rest over lunch.

Great walk. Beautiful scenery and history.

.Awesome walk except for crowds don't even think about doing it weekends if you're fit doing it 2 or 3 times is a good work out

Amazing hike with absolutely wonderful beach views. We took 2 hours or something to complete it. If you dont mind driving there from Melbourne, its worth it. Very less traffic on the hike. Make sure its low tide so that you can complete all of the trek along the coast.

The best and the toughest one, such a beautiful view over the Halls Gap and surroundings.

Definitely some challenging spots but it was really good, unfortunately I went when it was 40 degrees! Hint: ration your water.. took me approximately 3.5 hours to complete and I ran out of water lol 2-3 litres should be enough. Some really great view points as well!

Very hard and requires navigation skills. We failed to get to the Falls and had to bushbash our way out. Experience in route finding and map reading is very necessary.

Great walk through forest with lots of bird life. Crisscrosses forest tracks and roads. Needs moderate fitness and a map or app

Nice easy walk. Could be very hot as there isn’t any shelter.

As described below, the first half is definitely a fitness challenge, and trekking poles will be your best friend coming up and down this trail, we managed up and back in 5 hours with a big break at the top and another on the way down to refill the hydration bladder with fresh drinkable spring water that seems to have a que of people filling the backs of Ute's with 20ltr containers! (it's listed on Google maps) Just take the "10 mile picnic area" turn off on the way back down, then walk along the road about 800M to get back to the downhill part of the track!

Flat trail with plenty of shade. The end near crossover bridge is less maintained/travelled.

Great walk with views of the flat agricultural lands and the valley and reservoir below. (Views are similar to those at Boroka if you can’t quite make the walk). Nothing too streneous, moderate rating is appropriate for this walk. Path is easily marked out with arrows along the way.

Fun tracks, medium difficulty

It may be only 12-14km but the first half of this trail is a serious slog on a narrow, slippery trail, with ether steady ascents, steep ascents or bloody steep ascents. Yes you do start by going down to a creek and then along the fence line of a farm before it’s all uphill no switchbacks. It eases off after you cross the road, halfway up, with a couple of kms along a ridgeway. But you feel great getting to the top. Heading down was tricky and slippery but not as taxing. Lots of ferny shade and birdsong and filtered sunlight through high trees. Not much a view til the top and then only if you have the fuel in your legs to climb the lookout tower. But there are picnic shelters and good toilets at the top.

great family spot. walks. bbq. swim. canoe. take own water.

good city walk when you want country. easy stroll. easy paths. lots of birds

Nice easy walk with ocean views and a breeze.

good trail with kids
