2.5 hours from Melbourne, along Victoria’s Great Ocean Road, just past Apollo Bay, there is spectacular ancient wonder to be explored
at Maits Rest. An easy self-guided 800m circuit takes you through cool green temperate rainforest thick with grandfather gums. A wooden boardwalk built over the tree-fern gullies and moss-covered roots, makes the forest available for young and old.

Pack a hearty lunch and prepare for rock scrambling and cliff rim hugging. Only a 1 hour drive from Melbourne (8km west of Bacchus Marsh) this place is a playground for experienced bushwalkers. The Circuit Walk is one of our favourite – Allow about 4.5 hrs for this 10km adventure. Start the walk at the Quarry or Meikles Point Picnic Area and expect spectacular views along the rocky rims and serene sounds deep in the belly of the gorge.

Stay on the Princess Hwy then after Mount Moriac turn left onto Cape Otway Rd. Stop when you get to the town of Forrest.

The sound of the rolling waves makes for a good night sleep at Shipwreck camping ground. We woke refreshed and ready to walk. Down to the beach, through the creek and across the heathlands. The three hour return walk saw us nearly stumble on two snake, beautiful creatures. Be sure to bush walk with a first aid kit. Mobile reception is dodgy in this part of the land. FYI first aid procedures for snake bites can be found here. The isolation of the wide open beach at Seal Creek calls for a skinny dip, but take care – the water is wild!
