Relax in the heart of one of the world's great touring destinations.

The Apollo Bay Cottages are perfectly positioned, right on the iconic Great cean Road and framed by the stunning Otway Ranges National Park - home to some of the most beautiful rainforest Australia has to offer.

There are many things to explore while here, including the Cape Otway Lighthouse, Otway Fly Treetop Adventures, and a myriad of secluded beaches, forest walks and waterfalls.

Otway Fly Treetop Adventures

Otway Fly Treetop Adventures offers a whole host of experiences with the two core activities being The Otway Fly Treetop Walk and The Otway Fly Zip Line Tour.

The Otway Fly Treetop Walk is a 1 hour rainforest walk experience that is approx 2km in total and features a 600mt long and 30mt high steel structured treetop canopy walkway that takes you right into the treetops. It’s the longest and tallest walkway of its type in the world! Included in this walk is the kids Prehistoric Path, where there is a dinosaur around every corner!

The Otway Fly Zip Line Tour is a 3.5 hour experience and includes 2.5 hours of Zip Line activity (including training and simulation), 8 cloud stations, 6 flights and 2 suspension bridges and 1 hour for the Treetop Walk.
Cape Otway Lightstation

CAPE Otway Lightstation is the oldest, surviving lighthouse in mainland Australia. The light, which has been in continuous operation since 1848, is perched on towering sea cliffs where Bass Strait and the Southern Ocean collide. For thousands of immigrants, after many months at sea, Cape Otway was their first sight of land after leaving Europe.

The iconic lighthouse is the highlight of the Great Ocean Road, but there's so much more to see and do within the Lightstation grounds. Take a short detour from the Great Ocean Road through magnificent forests where you are guaranteed to see koalas.
The 12 Apostles

From Marengo it is a 1 hour 10 minute drive (roughly 83 kms west along the Great Ocean Road that winds through the Great Otway National Park before meandering along the limestone cliffs along the coastline).

The Twelve Apostles visitor centre is located on the right and has a large carpark. It is a short walk the short to the windswept lookouts to see the world famous limestone sea stacks. Many people believe the stacks are best viewed at sunset as the sun sets over the Southern Ocean. Don't forget to take your camera and a warm jacket as it can be windy. Port Campbell is nearby if you wish to stop for dinner.

Keep an eye out at dusk for penguins coming ashore on the beach far below. Their tracks can be spotted in the sand show where they waddle back to their burrows to keep safe from predators.

Fabulous local seafood

Apollo Bay offers a wonderful array of freshly caught seafood. The local fishing fleet specialize in the Southern Rock Lobster, which if you visit the harbour during fishing season, you can watch the boats bring in their catch, or even purchase your own at the co-op there.

There are a number of restaurants in Apollo Bay that regularly serve the best of the local catch and in February it all culminates in the Seafood Festival held on the harbour which is very popular.
