DAY 4 Friday 26th March 2021

Milanesia Beach to Moonlight Head. Walking distance 11kms

The first highlight today is Milanesia Beach, which is one of those secret beaches not many people get to see. The track then cuts through and alternates between farmland and isolated beach and sea cliffs with a roller coaster of ups and downs to reach Ryan's Den. From here you'll have breathtaking views all the way back to Cape Otway and west to Cape Volney. From Ryan's Den the trail then continues through coastal forests over Cape Volney towards Moonlight Head. It is a challenging (lots of ups and downs), but a very rewarding day. Tonight we have dinner at the Princetown Tavern and spend the night at Clifton Beach Lodge.

DAY 5 Saturday 27th March 2021

Princetown to the 12 Apostles. Walking distance 6kms

The wetlands around Princetown support a wide variety of bird life, where we will cross the Gellibrand River on a trestle bridge to embark on one of our last sections to the 12 Apostles. A pleasant walk through coastal scrub and escarpment will start to reveal stunning views of the looming Apostles. We will end our walk today at Gibson's steps, taking in the eastern Apostles from sea level for a unique perspective. You may also opt to go for a swim if the weather is nice.

After viewing the 12 Apostles and lunch we will make our way back to Melbourne.

When we arrive back in Melbourne we will pack away our well-worn walking clothes and get dressed up for a celebration dinner with our team. This is a great opportunity to reflect on our past few days.

You also have the opportunity to add on a helicopter flight over the 12 Apostles for an additional charge. ​
