The Great Ocean Walk is an iconic and amazing walking adventure where nature’s majesty unfolds at every step. It crosses a wide variety of landscapes, from quiet forests to windy cliffs and from rocky shores to wave-swept beaches. Whether you are an international traveller or simply an Aussie who hasn’t seen enough of their own backyard, the Great Ocean Walk is truly an experience that you don’t want to miss.
However, if rustic camping out on the trail just isn’t for you, consider staying at Johanna Seaside Cottages, located conveniently near the Great Ocean Road and the half-way point of the walk. Fully equipped yet private, our cottages will make for a fantastic walking holiday with the challenge that you’re looking for and the creature comforts you prefer.
Stunning cottages that meet your needs
When you want to roll out of bed energised for a day of walking and then unwind and relax after it’s done, Johanna Seaside Cottages offers several accommodations near the Great Ocean Walk to fit your specific needs. From couples looking for complete privacy to families looking for a home away from home, you will find the perfect cottage for your Great Ocean Walk experience.
Our cottages are pet friendly, completely furnished and nicely decorated. They have fully equipped kitchens and gourmet catering options available, if you’d rather not have to cook every day. We can accommodate your four-legged friends and groups up to ten. When you’re ready to relax and unwind after a day of hiking, you can indulge in an in-house massage, relax in the pool or simply watch the sun set over the hills until it’s dark enough to stargaze.
An ideal location for the Great Ocean Walk and other attractions
The Johanna Seaside Cottages property is ideally located near the mid-point of the Walk. Since we also offer itineraries and complimentary car transfers to various starting points on the Walk, you can do as much or as little of it as you like. From our 600-acre beach front property, you can set out to explore in both directions and then return to your beautiful cottage at the end of the day to unwind.
It is an ideal base camp for day trips to the various other attractions along the trail and in the area, too. Those include the Otway Fly Tree Top Walk, 12 Apostles, the Cape Otway Light Station and a number of local bush tracks and waterfalls. When you’ve had your fill of walking, Johanna Beach is also nearby, offering surfing, fishing, warm sand and dramatic views of the sea. If your stomach is driving your exploration, there are several berry farms and wineries, as well as a fish and organic produce market close at hand. There are restaurants and places to shop in Apollo Bay, too.
