Kennett River

Kennett River, located half way between Lorne and Apollo Bay, and only a hop, skip and jump from Wye River, offers a safe beach (patrolled during the peak season) and is known as a reliable break for the more experienced surfer. Keep an eye out for dolphins and seals frolicking in the waves and spot migrating whales from May – September.

You know the place is good when the local wildlife make it their home! In fact Grey River Road is one of the most popular places to spot koalas and native birds along the Great Ocean Road.

The stretch of coastline between Lorne and Apollo Bay is some of the most picturesque in the region.  The Great Ocean Road hugs the cliff-face as it winds through the Great Otway National Park and rolling farmland.
