Located on Victoria’s scenic coastal route between Wye River and Cape Otway and nestled in the foothills of the majestic Otway Ranges, lies the iconic seaside town of Apollo Bay. This is where the country meets the coast. Once a sleepy fishing village accessible only by sea, Apollo Bay is now a smart seaside resort famed for its seafood.

Even if you're not a seafood savant, there is plenty of keep your preoccupied in between the hours you spend relaxing at your Apollo Bay accommodation. Look to one side of the Great Ocean Road and you’ll be met with rolling green hills and farmland; turn your head for rugged coastlines and crashing waves. The laid-back main street is an eclectic mix of shops, cafes and restaurants. If you’re there on the weekend, visit the regular Saturday foreshore market for local arts, crafts and fresh produce.

Enjoy world-renowned swimming and surf beaches, or try your luck with a spot of fishing at the local marina. Away from the beach, focus your attention inland to discover thundering waterfalls, petrified rainforests and streams so clear you won't be able to resist tipping your toes in. Discover Apollo Bay's delights from ground level, or join the ranks of birds and butterflies by taking a walk among the treetops at the Otway Fly. Don't be surprised if you find yourself wishing you had wings so you could take in this aerial perspective of the Otway Ranges more frequently.

Walking through the Otway Ranges also gives you the chance to spot the locals. Keep your peepers pointed skyward to look out for dozing koalas, or head towards Melba Gully as it turns dark to glow worms in action. After, you can retire to your Apollo Bay accommodation, or if you've worked up an appetite you can sample the famous seafood at Chris's at Beacon Point for dinner with a view.
