Apollo Bay

Apollo Bay Township

Apollo Bay is a picturesque seaside fishing village just a short 45 min (37.4 km) drive via the Great Ocean road from Cumberland River Holiday Park.

Swim, dive, surf and paddle out in the pristine coastal waters. Take a dip at the beach, climb aboard a surfboard or kayak, and get up close to local seal colonies. Anglers have plenty on offer too, with a deep-sea fishing adventure at the top of the list.

For the landlubbers, there are sunset beach rides on horseback, gift shops, galleries and teahouses along with countless culinary delights to choose from. Fishing is an important local industry so seafood is always on the menu at the local cafes and restaurants. For dinner with ocean views, try Chris’s at Beacon Point, which sits high in the hills overlooking the sea. Got a taste for fine seafood? Visit in February for the Apollo Bay Seafood Festival.

Weekend visitors will love the regular Saturday foreshore market for local crafts, artworks, curios and fresh produce.

Apollo Bay Fisherman’s Co-op is the perfect one-stop seafood shop and an excellent way to purchase the local seafood. The local fishing fleet of Apollo Bay ensures a fresh supply of seafood throughout the region, especially known for the excellent supply of Southern Rock Lobster (live or freshly cooked), scallops, flake and snapper.
The Harbour Fish Shop offers fresh seafood to purchase and also fish and chips to take-away or enjoy on the viewing deck that overlooks the picturesque Apollo Bay Harbour.

Things to do

Cumberland River flows into the ocean 7 kms south west of Lorne, Victoria’s most popular coastal town. In this area, we have the ‘wiggly bit’ of the Great Ocean Road, where the mountains and river meet the sea. This part of the Great Ocean Road is full of attractions for all tastes.
