Apollo Bay is an Australian town in southwestern Victoria. It's a stop on the Great Ocean Road, a driving route that winds along the coast, passing through the Great Otway National Park. The park covers rugged coastline, beaches and the mountains of the Otway Ranges. Waterfalls dot the park, including the 3 cascades of Triplet Falls. In town, the hilltopMarriners Lookout offers panoramic views over the ocean.
Swim, dive, surf and paddle out in the pristine coastal waters. Take a dip at the beach, climb aboard a surfboard or kayak, and get up close to local seal colonies. Anglers have plenty on offer too, with a deep-sea fishing adventure at the top of the list.
For the landlubbers, there are sunset beach rides on horseback, gift shops, galleries and teahouses along with countless culinary delights to choose from. Fishing is an important local industry, so seafood is always on the menu at the local cafes and restaurants. For dinner with ocean views, try Chris's at Beacon Point, which sits high in the hills overlooking the sea. Got a taste for fine seafood? Visit in February for the Apollo Bay Seafood Festival.
Take a drive into the Otways to find mainland Australia's oldest lighthouse. Walk through the nearby rainforest and wander past plunging waterfalls and lush fern gullies. Enjoy an exhilarating ride through the ranges on a mountain bike or take a treetop walk along the Otway Fly and get a bird's eye view of the spectacular Otway Ranges.
Spot native wildlife such as glow worms at Melba Gully, go in search of the elusive platypus at serene Lake Elizabeth, or take a walk through nearby Kennett River and watch out for sleepy koalas in the trees.
