Apollo Bay  Victoria

    •   Show me: a map of Apollo Bay

Apollo Bay has been the graveyard of many a ship. While improved navigation techniques and safety measures have meant that no craft has come to grief on this part of the southern coast since the Casno was wrecked in 1932, today’s fishermen and surfers still have to keep a weather eye out for sudden Bass Strait storms.

The snap weather changes, however, don’t lessen Apollo Bay’s appeal as a holiday and fishing resort on the Great Ocean Road which extends for more than 300 kilometres from Torquay to Peterborough along Victoria’s southern coastline. Built to honour the sacrifice made by World War I Diggers and completed in 1932, the road winds alongside some of the most dramatically scenic seascapes in the world.

Apollo Bay’s bonus attractions include magnificent bush and rainforest walks, a glow-worm gallery, hang-gliding and horse-riding. Apollo Bay also hosts the Old Cable Station Museum, whose historic collection is anchored by material tracing the laying of the telephone cable across Bass Strait to Tasmania in 1936.

Make sure you make time for the short run to Paradise and the tranquil fern forests of the Barham River valley in the hills behind the bay.
