Apollo Bay

Home of fresh seafood

Deservingly known as paradise by the sea, Apollo Bay is midway along the majestic Great Ocean Road, in the shelter of Cape Otway and on the lowest slopes of the beautiful Otways.

Fresh Local Seafood

Wrestle a fighting salmon from the Barham River mouth and dive amongst the rocks spying the glaring eyes of a wary lobster. Or, trusting the expert team of fisherman and chef to serve up the catch of the day matched with a crisp glass of locally harvested Sauvignon Blanc.


Outdoor Adventure

Feel alive in nature’s playground. Bike, hike, ride, kayak, board, drive or fly through the region’s best.


A Weekend Away in Apollo Bay

Apollo Bay is a salt of the earth fishing town. Here you can enjoy tranquil beaches, the freshest of seafood and a vibrant culture scene.


Discover Wildlife Wonders

Apollo Bay marks the entry point for some of Australia’s most celebrated short and multi-day walks, and is the perfect base to explore the Great Ocean Walk and surrounding Otways rainforest.



Local markets take place year-round in Apollo Bay & the Otways, showcasing a miscellany of art, craft and local produce. Stock up on fresher-than-fresh goodies, locally grown in fertile Otway soil.
