Hiking on the Great Ocean Walk

OK, so I’ve been hanging out in Apollo Bay a bit lately.  And telling people just how nice it is to hike down there.  And how great our Hiking Retreat was.

But don’t take my word for it. See for yourself.

I must warn you that my videoing skills are about as good as my selfie stick skills (ie could do with a bit of work), but Im sure you’ll forgive me when you see how nice it is!

This is Shelly Beach – private, secluded, and beautiful.  There’s a carpark, toilets (OK they are drop) and a picnic area, so even non-hikers can come and enjoy.

And this is Apollo Bay Main Beach – while the others had a sleep in, I grabbed a cuppa and headed down to the beach.


Does this look like a fun way to spend your weekend?
