Beaches

The Great Ocean Road is famous for its glorious beaches, long stretches of golden sand, rugged rock formations, old shipwrecks, wild oceans, fabulous surf and sheltered lagoons. We will be pleased to direct you to the perfect one.

Cycling & Mountain Bike Riding

Imagine free wheeling amongst the eucalypts down to the beach. Bring your own bikes or hire them in Apollo Bay. We can pack you a picnic lunch and suggest cycling adventures or you can join an exhilarating guided mountain bike tour.

Platypus Canoe Tours

A forested valley, dammed by a landslide in 1952, is now the beautiful Lake Elizabeth, home to Platypus – fascinating and ancient mammals, laying eggs in burrows deep in the lake bank and suckling their young. Observe them at dawn or dusk on a guided canoe tour – a surreal experience through the mist.

This must be the perfect memento of an Australian coastal holiday – return home knowing how to surf. Hire a board yourself or share the waves with experienced and qualified coaches who can teach you the secrets of riding them.
