Find out more about Apollo Bay

Exploring Apollo Bay

The popular seaside stopover of Apollo Bay stands between Cape Otway and the Wye River at the halfway point of the magnificent 243km long Great Ocean Road along Australia's southeast coast. Water sports and sunbathing are among Apollo Bay's most popular attractions, like in most other Great Ocean Road seaside communities. However, Apollo Bay also boasts spectacular bush walking trails through the seemingly endless streams, waterfalls, and misty green rainforests of the Otway Ranges.

The first European settlement near present day Apollo Bay was a Point Bunbury whaling station established during the 1840s, but the region's fishing and tourism industry exploded in earnest after the Great Ocean Road opened in 1932. The Old Cable Museum now stands in the building where the first telegraph and telephone connections between Tasmania and mainland Australia were established. Apollo Bay's other major museum, the Bass Strait Shell Museum, contains an impressive shell, coral, and marine life collection

Sightseeing in Apollo Bay

- Great Otway National Park


Four smaller parks were combined into the vast and rugged Great Otway National Park in 2004. Tall cliffs over sandy beaches dominate the park's coastline, while the bushy interior is filled with waterfalls, fern gullies, and the steep Otway Ranges. Cape Otway Lightstation stands guard over this extensive park between Princetown and Anglesea.


- Marriners Lookout


It may take mere minutes to drive the kilometre between Apollo Bay and Marriner's Lookout, but the half-hour return trip on foot is far more scenic and relaxing. Green and lush mosses, lichens, and tree ferns flourish along the hiking trail to Marriner’s Falls.


Transportation in Apollo Bay

Cars are by far the most common way to travel in Apollo Bay, where public transportation options are few and far between. The community lies nearly 200kms from Melbourne International Airport and 132kms from the smaller Avalon Airport. The nearest rail station is located over 60kms away in Birregurra. Three private bus operators who travel between Apollo Bay, Geelong, and several smaller Great Ocean Road communities are the only regional public transportation apart from taxis.
