North from Apollo Bay along The Great Ocean Road
Apollo Bay sits about half way along The Great Ocean Road, so it is the perfect base from which to explore the road, all the wonderful beaches and the rainforest hinterland. Scenes along The Great Ocean Road that many people see on advertisements and in magazines is the section between Apollo Bay and Lorne. Peppered with fine beaches and sheer escarpments, and with streams plunging through ancient gorges to the sea, the hidden beauty of this area can be missed because the drive is so awe inspiring. About 40 minutes drive from Apollo Bay is a moderate 1km walk to Sheoak Falls, or an 8km trek to Kalimna Falls in the same area. Short walks are a great way to taste the vast hinterland rainforest and its meeting with the sea.
