The Wye General Store! It has amazing coffee. But, there are some other little gems like the Kafe Koala.
And, you can’t go past the Wye River Pub for a meal and the view!
Depending on where you are on the coast I love all the lookouts, but my top three would have to be:
There are so many gorgeous little art galleries along the coast that really slow you down like at Aireys Inlet, Apollo Bay and Port Campbell.
And I like to clear my mind along any of the national park trails; there are so many along the Great Ocean Walk.
Definitely surfing! Anywhere and everywhere! I also like kayaking with the seals in Apollo Bay. Other fun places include the Otway Fly Treetop Adventures. There are also lots of great festivals throughout the year in the towns and villages.
Definitely go to the summer Nightjar markets Torquay.
The Winter Wild Music and Arts Festival in Apollo Bay.
The glow worms at the back of Kennett River. They are a spectacular sight and a lot of people don’t know they’re there!
