Culture & History in Apollo Bay

Don't hibernate this winter when you could be exploring Apollo Bay and the stunning Great Ocean Road without the summer crowds?! It is filled with history, culture and both hand forged and natural landscapes which will leave you in awe.

Take a tour of the Cable Station Museum, the building tells a marvellous story of its own life since it was built in 1936 originally as one of the buildings from which the undersea cable connected Tasmania to the mainland. But not only that, it tells stories that of the surrounding area's maritime, development and the people whom lived in what was once considered and extremely isolated community.

The museum is open Saturday, Sundays, Public and School Holidays from 2pm to 5pm.

If you're game to explore the fantastic outdoor cultural attractions that Apollo Bay has on offer, then the Old Cable Museum is not the only place you're going to want to visit while you're traveling the Great Ocean Road and the stunning Apollo Bay.

There is an array of interesting attractions rich in history that will take you back in time, like the Cape Otway Lightstation built in 1848, the nearby Aboriginal Cultural Site, The Marriners Lookout where you can absorb the stunning view of the town, harbour and coast but if you’re luck, you might also see the SS Casino - a 1932 steamship which sank in shallow waters close to shore.

Then, of course after a day exploring come back and put your feet up in the cosy warmth of your cabin (or site) here at BIG4 Apollo Bay Holiday Park.
