Family Food Adventures

Family Food Adventures

It’s on for young and old on the Great Ocean Road where every family road trip has a fun food memory forever pinned to it. Sharing food adventures together makes for full bellies and happy faces. Choose from dozens of eateries, takeaways and food outlets along the road. Try these fun and tasty treats for starters.

Inspire your young chocolate-lover(s) with a hands-on Junior Chocolatier class at Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery. The 45-minute class is packed with fun and includes a personalised badge, chef’s hat and apron, graduation certificate and three take-home creations. It’s a ‘parents free zone’ so the rest of the family gets to wait it out in the amazing all-day café that’s bursting with treats.

Embrace an early morning start with the kids and head out for a hearty breakfast at The Pavilion, overlooking the bay in Warrnambool. Order your café latte and watch the horses train up and down the beach before tucking into your poached eggs or something more exotic like ginger wild rice porridge. When you’re done soaking up spectacular views, go seal-spotting along the breakwater.

Head to Apollo Bay for the award-winning delights of Dooley’s Premium Ice Cream. Yum! Lickable, lovable home-made ice cream in oodles of quirky and classic flavours. How about peanut butter? Or maybe Cointreau for mum? If you dare, try the Vegemite. Or, for a party in your mouth, go a mixed triple-scoop cone. And with cones, tubs, sundaes and thick shakes on the menu, and all dietary requirements catered for, no one needs to go without.

Race each other to Apollo Bay Fishermen’s Co-op. Dine on fish and chips like they used to be (or grilled half cray like you’ve never tasted before) overlooking the stunning harbour. Or drag your bag back to the sand in the popular family spot by the harbour wall.

Get your cheesy grins on! Take the whole family into the heart of rich dairy country for one of Cheese World’s famous Sungold milkshakes and a glimpse into rural life from the 1900s. Yes, there’s cheese too. This is the ‘cellar door’ of the Warrnambool Cheese and Butter Factory, where many family-favourite and award-winning cheddars were born, so you’ll be spoilt for choice.
