    The clifftop views along the coastline were incredible, especially with the chance to spot some birds by the river mouth. The new track section felt a bit like a victory lap, leading into Port Campbell National Park and the grand finale.

    The viewing platform offered the perfect spot for a photo with the 12 Apostles – such a majestic sight! The trail extension made the last stretch a breeze, and the visitor center with restrooms and cafe was a welcome sight after 5 hours on the trail.

    Overall, this leg was a fantastic mix of scenic beauty and a moderate challenge – definitely recommend it for anyone doing the Great Ocean Walk!
