For runners, there is a myriad of inspiring runs to enjoy, on road, track and trail. In fact, we reckon that if you’re happy to forgo serious mountain missions, the Surf Coast offers some of the best trails for singletrack connoisseurs.
Of course, when you’re done running, the beauty of it is that there’s so much more to explore – waterfall walks, art houses, sensational culinary experiences, wineries, farm gate produce, micro-breweries, and of course plenty of wild beach landscapes to take in plus the Great Ocean Road. So stay the weekend, and explore.
