What to see and do?
Some of the fantastic places you're going to want to explore are the many, many lookouts and waterfalls that are scattered within Apollo Bay, Great Ocean Road tourist tracks and the Otways.

After a bit more adventure?
If you're more of the adventurous type, then why not enjoy nature from a different perspective? Climb 6 flights of stairs and take a walk with the clouds with the Otway Fly Treetop Adventures. The Otway Fly Treetop Walk is a 1-hour rainforest walk along 600m long, 30m high steel structured treetop canopy walk that you're just going to love!
Or perhaps you'd rather stay close the ground? Then weave through national parks and deserted beaches on the Great Ocean Walk. You can take a short walk or go for 3, 5 or 8 days.
But, if you're more of the type of traveller who just enjoys eating healthy no matter when or where you are, there are some delicious stops you're going to want to make during your stay.
Oh, the food! Glorious food!
Apollo Bay is renowned for fresh seafood, farms, markets and delightful cafes and restaurants. One of our favourites is the Great Ocean Road Brewhouse where they cater for all different tastes but there are many other places to eat. You should ask the girls at reception for their favourites!
