    Never heard of The Great Ocean Road before but because of Camille with Go West Tours, so many memories from our day exploring the Surf Coast, the Green Coast, and the Shipwreck Coast! Such a rich history in this part of Australia. Thank you Camille for a wonderful day…this trip is a must for those visiting Melbourne who want to get out of the city!

    The waves were breaking at Winkipop not Bells but still worth a visit. No flags or surf patrol so we headed back to Jan Juc for a swim

    Even if you aren't a 'waxhead' you'll probably get something out of this given the prevalence of surfing in Australian culture and if you are a waxhead then you'll really enjoy it. There are displays talking about the birth of surfing in Australia and there are old boards, new boards, information about construction techniques, old books about surfing and videos about the subject.

    It's cheap enough and well laid out enough that even if you don't know your tow rope from your leg rope you won't have wasted your time.

    This beach is most lovely to stroll along, clean, long, good surf and incredibly dog friendly! But if you are a little nervous of nudity on the beach this is not the place for you. It is one of the nudist beaches in the region so consider that before going there. But highly recommended, not crowded and very peaceful. Remote from the township of Torquay so no shops or facilities apart from a basic toilet block at the car parking area. Access to the beach over soft sandy paths meandering through the sand dunes.

    This was our first stop as part of our Great Ocean Rd tour from Melbourne. We had about 20 minutes to explore the beach on a rainy morning, but it looked nice. Worth the stop

    Walking leisurely along the beach and coming across this playground was a highlight for the kids. It also broke up their walk along the coast which was nice. There is toilet facilities as well as a drink fountain to fill up your bottles. We spent close to an hour here before continuing with our walk.

    Great Sunday session with a cool
    Casual vibe. Great beers at reasonable prices on tap. Live music, friendly atmosphere everyone felt welcomed even the furry friends. Huge screen with sport showing without taking over the venue. We meet with mates and enjoyed tasting a few beers, wine and spirits were also served at the bar.
    The food van in the beer garden provided us with some great share food spicy wing and crispiest chips they were delicious.
    Fabulous afternoon we will be back

    Practitioner Chloe is sensational.
    Loved all the treatments.
    The place is calming and quiet and more wonderful things to mention if I didn’t have a post treatment brain!

    Fisho’s is the local go-to for a long walk on firm sand, without or with a dog. Also good for young families as sheltered bay offers gentle water for safe and shallow play.

    We bought delicious cheeses, olives, salami, pastries and wholemeal sourdough bread to have for lunch. Everything was organic and tasted delicious. Coffee was ordinary.
