Welcome to Apollo Bay
One of the larger towns along the Great Ocean Road, Apollo Bay has a tight-knit community of fisherfolk, artists, musicians and sea changers. Rolling hills provide a postcard backdrop to the town, while broad, white-sand beaches dominate the foreground. It’s an ideal base for exploring magical Cape Otway and the adjoining national park. There are some decent restaurants and several lively pubs, and it's one of the best towns on the Great Ocean Road for budget travellers, with numerous hostels and ready transport access. It's also a popular stop for package bus tourists.
The Gadubanud people are the traditional custodians of Apollo Bay and the Otways region.
