Drive west along the Great Ocean Road 22 km past Lorne to Kennett River. Cross the bridge, turn right at the caravan park and then turn left into Grey River Road. Follow this unsealed road for 6.3 km to the Grey River Picnic Ground. There are picnic tables and wood-fired barbecues (supply your own wood).
Walk 38: Grey River Nature Walk
This is a short but very special walk that gives you the experience of being in cool temperate rainforest where you will find giant Mountain Ash and other eucalypts, vines, tree ferns, mosses, lichens, liverworts, ferns and fungi all in the space of less than 1 km. This valley was regarded as special by early timber getters and was left unlogged.
