Attractive Apollo Bay

Roll out your white shoes and bowling hat – we’re taking the slow lane in picturesque Apollo Bay. Attracting thousands of holidaymakers (of all ages) each year, Apollo Bay manages to retain the old-world charm that keeps people coming back time and time again.

Set along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, this is coastal Australia at its finest, offering rainforests, bays and a great stretch of coastline for surfing and paragliding. Visit Triplet Falls and try the Great Ocean Walkbefore exploring the Bass Strait Shell Museum and the Old Cable Station Museumfor a look at the town’s history. You won’t know what you’re missing unless you take the time to really relax in Apollo Bay. And don’t worry, there’s a pub per person and the drinks are at genuine 1950s prices!
