      The Great SW Walk in Victoria, Australia is a 80 mile hiking trail along the coast and forest of Southern Victoria.

      I have hiked this walk in full and in parts many times always admiring the great range of plants and animals that you see as you walk. I always see kangaroos, emus, koalas and

      platypus to name just a few.

      The forest part of the walk takes you through many types of vegetation and some of the walk follows the limestone cliffs of the Glenelg river to the little town of Nelson.

      The coast part of the walk goes from Nelson along to the port town of Portland. There is sandy beach along most of this part of the walk. The sea is too rough to swim in all year round and has rips.

      The walking track is easy to navigate and the camp sites have rainwater tanks, toilets and BBQ areas with tables. Hiking the trail is free at the moment.

      You have to ...

      bring all your food as Nelson does not have trail food available but there is a group that can drop food off for you in camps along the way for a small fee.

      I love this walk and every time I go on it there are different animals and things to see. In Winter it is

      really too cold to do the walk but it is excellent in summer and Autumn/fall. In spring you can marval at all the varieties of small native orchids and other wildflowers which dot the forest. It takes about 8-10 days to complete the walk which is easy and a great holiday for anyone who loves the outdoors.
