Friends of the Great South West Walk



The Great South West Walk is a 252km semi-remote hiking journey through the south west of Victoria traversing a number of parks. The journey takes in the spectacular landscapes of forest, river and coastal areas. The walk includes sections popular for half day to single and multi-day hikes and shorter sections to popular visitor destinations. The vision of the Friends of the Great South West Walk is to have the Great South West Walk as the premier walking track in Australia where the walk offers a diverse coastal, forest and river experience, in a safe, well presented environment which is readily accessible to all.


In future years the visitor will find the Great South West Walk to be; a major walking track system providing opportunities for a wide range of walkers that contributes to the economy and social good of the south west region; well maintained and presented, in a high quality, mostly natural, environment; readily accessible through effective promotion, marketing and pre-visit information, with effective links to existing transport and tourist infrastructure, with availability of appropriate commercial services, with good directional signage and effective interpretive signage in high use areas, and; maintained by a continuing cooperative arrangement between the land managers and a vibrant and ongoing Friends of the Great South West Walk group
