Apollo Bay

Once the home of whalers and timber cutters, today Apollo Bay is a haven for nature lovers, foodies and music buffs.

Coast along the Great Ocean Road and find a little town with a big appetite for seafood. Get within a whisker of a seal colony with your kayak or drop a line into the depths of the ocean with a deep-sea fishing charter. Over Apollo Bay’s back fence, ancient forests count the centuries while glow worms twinkle in the dark fern gullies of the Otways.
