Great Ocean Pathway Information
The Great Ocean Pathway meanders around the spectacular coastline of Esperance, on the south coast of Western Australia, with its dazzling white beaches and unbelievable aqua water.
This easy Top Trail runs 12 kilometres from Esperance Bay to Twilight Beach, the bitumen track, used by walkers, runners, cyclists and prams, follows the bay through town, passing cafes, fishing jetty and wharf.
The transition from the bay to ocean side requires a climb up to the hill to Twilight Beach Road. From here the trail follows the road but is removed from it as the coastal bush insulates the bike trail until arriving at the car park of one of many beautiful beaches.
The trail currently finishes at Twilight Beach. It can be accessed from a number of car parks along its length to provide a variety of sceneries and distance options.
Highlights include Blue Haven where granite outcrops jut out into the azure sea to create the lovely bays, Tanker jetty where angler’s fish and Sammy the Seal looks for fish heads and the Taylor Street Café housed in the old hospital building.
Whether cycling, walking or driving, this circuit is a classic and a must when in the area.
