Apollo Bay has got to be one of our favorite stops along the Great Ocean Road. Great restaurants, cafes and other amenities. To get a sense of the town, you have to visit the Mariners’ Lookout. The drive is about 3km eastwards, up a steep...More

The walk had very few visitors when we visited. A great open view that we had all to ourselves. It should be noted that there is a sign and a small gate to access the trail - don't let that turn you away. We some...More
