Stop into the beautiful seaside village of Apollo Bay, at the foothills of the mighty Otways. Hit the waters of the Southern Ocean, fossick for antiques, or enjoy the fruits of the sea caught by local fishermen. Roughly half way along the Great Ocean Road, use the bay as a base to explore the famous 12 Apostles and the vast Otway Ranges.

At the end of a day on the Great Ocean Road, this is an ideal place to stop after a long drive. It’s just a 15 minute walk to the Flagstaff Hill Maritime Museum and a short stroll to the centre of town with botanical gardens, shops and dining options – or the hotel’s Steakhouse restaurant lays claim to ‘the best steaks in town’.

Boutique stores, art galleries and restaurants championing local produce await you in this picturesque and historic fishing village at the end of the Great Ocean Road. This heritage building hotel will certainly add to the character. Make the most of the outdoors with a stroll on one of the many walking trails in the area.
