Did the Wells Cave track 2 days ago and I'm already planning to go back out!
Never before have I done a hike involving rock climbing and going through a cave! Incredible! Not easy, but so worth it.

This was a nice and easy hike. You can walk on the trail or walk on the beach for sections.

Great work with variety of terrain. Beach, rocks.
Views are amazing

This walk is about as good as it gets, traversing different types of landscapes from coastal heath to rainforest, and taking in beautiful bays and beaches. It can be done as a multi-day walk with a choice of camp sites, most located near secluded beaches, or travel light and stay at the Lightstation, making a 2-day circuit possible.

A simple walk rather than a hike. Views are OK amongst the antenna.

Totally worth the stop, albeit painfully touristy. If you go during summertime, prepare for the most annoying and plentiful flies you've ever experienced in your life. People were even wearing netting around their heads like a beekeeper. But you kinda forget all that once you (squeeze your way through the crowd and find a free spot on the railing to) see the view.

Wood cutting near the lake has closed the track temporarily

Loose surface, some steep sections, but great scenery and a beautiful little campground with a drop toilet and drinkable creek water at the finish (bookings required for campground via Parks Victoria). I ran/walked this trail with a colleague. It's rideable on a mountain bike, but there are better mountain bike trails elsewhere in the region.

A short walk with a few moderately steep sections of constructed granite steps. Manageable by kids as young as 5 but not suitable for strollers. Great views from the top (The Monolith) of Lake Catani and the Mt Buffalo National Park.

Excellent walk. Lots of rock scramble

great views and easy to follow

Completed track ( 104 km) in 6 days and 5 nights. The GOW signs and numbers are useful. Mobile signal was not too bad and in all camping sides water tanks were full and well conserved. I saw a lot animals and all scenery was fantastic. I had a negative experience between Blanket Bay to Aire River as I stopped to buy a cold drink at lighthouse shop but the shop attendant was impolite toward me. Also after Johanna’s beach camping side there are few gates that must be kept locked, after last gate please be careful as there are a few wild kangaroos in the area. Please note that at this part of the track I was chased away by a male kangaroo who wanted kick and scratch me. I ended up running and strategically jumping out of lane seeking a place to hide in the bush until big fella moved away. I really enjoyed the last leg of the track, I highly recommend to stop at small village close to Riverlock. At this village there is a great a cafe shop and this may be an opportunity to have a cup of latte so you can reach twelve apostles fully charged. Have fun!

It's a graet spot, just ruined by being a tourist stop off point.

In summer.....watch for snakes! Crazy climb up Jawbone. Even crazier hiking across the top. Views are pretty good and sides of ridge are not too dangerous. However, definitely not for children. I wouldn’t attempt the full circuit in one go as is quite arduous unless you are fit or experienced. Have good shoes and plenty of water in summer as the heat seems to sit on the backside of the mountain.

Easy trail with beautiful views at the end to the beach and lighthouse

Great easy hike to the Pinnacle. The “Grand Canyon” isn’t that spectacular, but why not. Trail markings isn’t great either, especially when compared to American trails.

The is one section of the hikes which will be difficult for the horizontally challenged. It’s a tight squeeze.

Also plenty of rock scrambles, but nothing too crazy.

Good scenic tour of the werribee river.. few areas got me worried as there were some steep rocks to climb.. but id do it again!

The Alltrails directions bring you to an ample parking lot and picnic area. We were welcomed by two kangaroos, and saw another pair near the end of the loop. Since we are from the US, that was a big deal for us. We also saw lots of birds - one looked like a red parrot. The hike is mostly flat, with one somewhat steep hill. Amazing lake views. Trail is well marked, and as another reviewer mentioned, there's a spot near the end (if you go counterclockwise) that has tall grass and the marks are hard to find. In that case, keep along (and inside) the fence and the markings eventually reappear. A couple spots had quite a few flies and grasshoppers. We brought insect repellant, and that appeared to work well. We totaled just over 15 km. Temp was in the 20 - 22C range, and we needed about 1 liter of water per person. Only saw three people on the trail (and one person on a bike on the road near the dam). Signs indicate that no dogs are allowed, but we did see some dog poop along the way.

Uneven and rocky, can get narrow at times. Sheltered from the sun on hot days. some rock formations to explore, a nice short walk if you have young kids or just starting out.

A rather unusual type of scenery, quite interesting and easy to hike

Easy to follow markers. We did get a little lost towards the end when the markers cut through the tree line. Follow the markers! Bring plenty of water.

Just a beautiful place. The walk is mostly along the reservoir and the scenery is just amazing. Few climbs up hill in some sections but nothing too difficult. We found a toilet in the middle of the trail couldn’t believe it. We didn’t use it but hey if you were desperate it’s there the hole in the ground as my kids put it.

Will do this Hike again only in reverse. Start Saddle Dam car park over the Dam wall on to the track and back to the car park.

Nice walk. A bit damp under foot & muddy at times. But the scenery is well worth it!

loved the hike, pretty hard. Especially up sugarloaf peak, lots of climbing - challenging and a little scary!

lovely walk, good track.

Help of a yomp!

Disappointing. Very rough and difficult to find this track. Not much bird life. Lots of rock climbers with constant loud music playing with expicit lyrics. Stick to the Grampians - any walk I've done there is better than this.
