Construction of the Apollo Bay Harbour was part of a post-war public works program.
The Second World War had exposed gaps and limitations in Victoria’s ports and harbours, so the need to provide a safe anchorage between Port Fairy and Port Phillip Bay became a priority.
Construction of the harbour commenced at the end of 1948 and took six years and 180,000 tonnes of rock to complete.
Apollo Bay is the last working fishing harbour on the Great Ocean Road.
