TWELVE APOSTLES LODGE WALK

Walking Lodge on the Great Ocean Road
THE WALK

The 12 Apostles Lodge Walk is a 4-day exclusive guided walk, capturing the second section of the Great Ocean Walk. Heading west from Castle Cove to the Twelve Apostles, you’ll cover 40-56 kilometres (dependent on extra endurance options) on this multi-day trek, concluding with a helicopter flight over the Apostles.
Despite its well carved path, there’s every chance to become lost. Lost in yourself, lost in the discreet detail of a wildflower, lost in the stories of shipwrecked hopes. Draw close to tempestuous Bass Strait, then retreat to the emerald tones of deep rainforest. Stand on the edge then cool off in the Gellibrand River. Invent your own experience.
Each evening, retreat to the haven that is The 12 Apostles Lodge where your in-house chef has been busily prepping the nightly menu. Curl up with a book, meet new friends with feet cosy in uniform foot spas and gather round the guide’s map to learn of tomorrow’s quest.
They say it’s about the journey not the destination. But on the Twelve Apostles Lodge Walk the journey is rivalled by its destination. This is what adds a sense of anticipation to the trek. Every step draws nearer to those iconic limestone stacks. It’s only when you finally make it, that you’ll understand every kilometre formed a chapter of your 12 Apostles story.

LODGE FEATURES

Five generous bedrooms can be converted to twin share or two single rooms depending on group requirements – all enjoying access to private en suite bathrooms.
The dining room has a lounge area well-suited for canapes when the fire pit isn’t crackling with friend-huddling flames. After a glass of regional red, move to the long table for your nightly two-course regional menu.
Onsite you’ll also find 24-hour tea and coffee facilities, gear drying room, daily newspapers and a lodge library well stocked with magazines, reference and fictional books. Ask about the lodge property walks, or wander the boutique shop. You’re not alone if you don’t stray far from the foot spa and dining table though!

THE ENVIRONMENT

The architecturally-designed lodge has been crafted with environmental sensitivity in mind. This translates to passive solar design, hydronic heating, low consumption electric and water fittings, on site waste water treatment and composting, plus a self-sufficient water supply. And there’s reason this eco-development is award-winning, delivering modern comforts with equal rigour. Expect Myrtle & Moss toiletries, hair dryers, library, mobile coverage (Telstra only) and limited wireless internet.

At the end of a day out on track, the 12 Apostles Lodge is a forest-hugged refuge three hours from Melbourne. This is where the foot spa awaits, your live-in chef, rainforest showers, kitchen garden, dining room stocked with local wines, and your king bedroom with spacious en suite.
