Otway Estate

Great Ocean Road

Now that Prickly Moses has opened a taphouse in Apollo Bay there's less reason to make the trek up here to its brewery, but it's a nice excuse for a drive. Here you'll be able to sample beers, ciders and wines; call ahead to check it's open, particularly on weekdays. There's also boutique accommodation (rooms from $200).
