Go for a swim if the weather and time permits.

    Take a guided stroll through the ancient Great Otway National Park to check out these enormous trees nestled in a lush warm temperate rainforest hidden off the Great Ocean Road. Stop for lunch in Apollo Bay, then go koala spotting in the wild at Kennett River.  We spend the afternoon cruising pass some spectacular scenery along the Surf Coast Hwy, before pulling into Torquay to enjoy dinner and get settled for the evening.
