Great Ocean Challenge
Take on the Great Ocean Walk alongside like-minded ocean lovers and tackle 100 kms to help raise $100K for Australia’s oceans and marine life.
The Great Ocean Walk is a one-way, longdistance walk traversing 105km. This once-in-a-lifetime hike will take you seven days.
Starting at Apollo Bay, passing through Great Otway National Park and Port Campbell National Park on the way. You’ll conclude your journey at the world-famous Twelve Apostles.
