This day trip traverses numerous bush tracks as it explores the secluded hinterlands behind the Great Ocean Road between Anglesea and Lorne.
The Great Ocean Road is one of Victoria’s best known scenic drives. However, lying to the west of this iconic route are the magnificent forests of the Otway Ranges.
Starting from Anglesea, we will pick up Denhams Track for some sandy climbs and extensive views as we make our way towards Loves Road. From here it is an easy drive to Distillery Creek picnic area for a short break. We will then continue east along Old Coach Road and Gentle Annie Track to Moggs Creek Track and Coal Mine track back to the great Ocean Road.
There is a short transit along the Great Ocean Road with some photo opportunities that it provides, before turning into Big Hill Track which winds back into the forest to the Big Hill camping area. From there we will take the bitumen back to Lorne to the end of the trip and a coffee before heading home.
