The friends of the Great South West Walk is a not for profit community group who maintain, administer and promote this walking trail in collaboration with Parks Victoria
The Great South West Walk, which begins at the Portland Visitor Information Centre, embraces all of the stunning natural features that the South West of Victoria has to offer.
The 250 km loop walk will take you on an unforgettable adventure via the forests of the Cobboboonee national Park, the majestic river gorges of the Lower Glenelg National Park and the picturesque coastal town of Nelson. The return leg meanders along sublime bays, high rugged cliffs and capes, a Fur Seal colony at Cape Bridgewater, the Point Danger Gannet Rookery and back to the historic city of Portland.
Almost everyone can share and enjoy the diversity of scenery and wildlife that is on offer, as the Great South West Walk is suitable for bush-walkers of most ages and abilities. Your choices include short one to two hour loop walks, full day walks with optional overnight camping at one of the 14 designated camp sites, or for the more adventurous, the complete 250 km loop walk.
