Great South West Walk

Walk Summary

This unforgettable experience winds around 3 National Parks, hardwood forests,  the pristine Glenelg River, the picturesque township of Nelson, aboriginal heritage sites, the mighty Southern Ocean and vast sand dunes, sandy bays and beaches, rugged cliffs, freshwater lakes, the Cape Nelson Lighthouse, the stunning Bridgewater Bay and amongst a diversity of natural fauna and flora including Blue and Southern Right Whales, a mainland Fur Seal colony, Australia's only mainland Australasian Gannet rookery and lots more.
