Easter along the Surf Coast and Great Ocean Road

The Surf Coast on The Great Ocean Road changes with the seasons. As the hotter weather cools, walking is delightful on the coastal heath-land, on the beaches and in the cooler rainforest. The summer’s rain has filled the rivers and the waterfalls are gushing in the Lorne hinterland. We’ve  been exploring our special nooks and crannies.

Life is renewing along the coast: tree-ferns unfurl their new fronds, birds are singing and skylarking, lush vegetation is everywhere, and the flowers are starting to bloom. The King Parrots and the Cockatoos screech and holler as they play amongst the trees. The smaller Thornbills and Pardalotes stay well out of their way on the lower branches.

Along the coast the Easter swells are starting, producing long rollers like prancing horses. The waves crash in to the shore, sculpting and forming the cliffs and rock platforms. The beach is strewn with sea life making beachcombing a delight.

Our walks follow the moods of this beautiful coast. We follow the tides, the blooming seasons, the breeding cycles of the birds and the marine and coastal creatures.

It’s a glorious area. Come and explore it with us! Grab a few friends and family and book a date with us. Five or more people in one group for 10% discount in Autumn.

Our guides are passionate about this coast and our gourmet food is tempting!
