“Hey mate, yeah keep going about 300 metres along the track and you’ll end up at the lighthouse, stunning views there mate” 🦘 

Wally the Wallaby helping the tourists find their way. Griffiths Island with its colony of shearwater seabirds, winding pathways and the spectacular lighthouse at the eastern tip, is a great place to explore in the heart of Port Fairy. 
Great capture by @a.simple.meandering 🙌

Located a little over 4hrs from Melbourne, Portland is well worth the drive. Whether you’re a history buff, foodie, nature lover or adventurer get ready for a great weekend. Wander the beautifully maintained historic streets, dine at the many harbourside pubs and restaurants, visit the nearby 2000 local resident Australian and Fur seals and discover deserted beaches.
Is it even the summer holidays if you’re not devouring some fresh local seafood? Here are some places to checkout 👇

1. @fishbymoonlite - Best potato cake you will ever try, as well as the freshest fish and 🍟 

2. @apollobayfishcoop 🦞 🦞 

3. @thewharfatportfairy - Try the seafood platter for two. 

4. @birdhouse.apollobay - Known for its fresh locally caught fish. 🎣

And if you are a serious seafood lover don’t miss Apollo Bay’s @apollobayseafoodfestival in February 🦞
With an international reputation as one of Australia’s best surf beaches,📍Bells Beach is an amazing spot – either in the water or out. There isn’t much ‘beach’ at Bells, it’s mostly a glorious cliff-face, and views from the cliff-top car park are spectacular – a great spot to watch local surfers out in the water.  Epic shot by @benrolfs.jpg 🏄‍♂️ ☀️ 🌊
