The Story Behind the Coat of Arms

The Story Behind the Coat of Arms

Look closely at the coat of arms and discover the secrets of Greatopia.


Ocean, beach, estuary, river and lakes are all within your reach in Greatopia, with backdrops that will take your breath away.


Whale Watching

Come and spy the giants of the deep as they journey from the Antarctic for their annual babymoon, breeding, birthing and raising their calves in our Greatopia backyard.


Lighthouse Trail

Let the historic lighthouses guide your way along Greatopia’s Great Ocean Road.



From friendly forgiving beginner waves to learn on, to some of the world surfing pros’ favourite surf spots — the Greatopian coast is filled with opportunity.



Greatopia is home to many feathered, furry and spikey locals. Keep a lookout for wallabies, koalas, kangaroos, potoroos, birds, echidnas and even the elusive platypus if you’re lucky.
