Apollo Bay Harbour

Holiday Travel Guide
Apollo Bay Harbour which includes a marina and boating

Whether staying in Apollo Bay, cruising through town down the Great Ocean Road or sailing in on a yacht, this harbour provides safe haven with great dining, watersports and impeccable views.

Enjoy scenes of bobbing boats strapped to their moorings, fishermen baiting their lines for a catch and sunset-chasers digging into a hearty fish and chips at Apollo Bay Harbour. This port is the heart of the surrounding township, Apollo Bay. Take a few days and try the delectable eating options and marine activities around the bay.

Apollo Bay Harbour was the first landing point for European immigrants that settled in this area in the 19th century. Since then it has grown into a popular holiday destination, attracting crowds with its peaceful atmosphere and stunning views of the rugged Victorian coast.

Enjoy the Australian sun along the Apollo Bay beachfront. Work on your tan, escape the heat in turquoise waters or perfect your surfing technique. In the afternoons, try a romantic horseback ride along the beach.

Adventurous travellers can take a kayaking tour or deep-sea fishing adventure, which are operated by local tourist centres. If you prefer staying on solid ground, try fishing from the harbour pontoons. Reel in barracuda, salmon or haddock to fry up later.

The harbour promenade hosts a number of delightful shops and cafés. Savor tea in an arty coffee house or peruse local galleries. Nearby gift shops also sell handmade trinkets, bracelets and assorted souvenirs.

The rise in tourism to the area has seen a range of top-class restaurants pop up along the harbour promenade. Try delicious seafood dishes which, thanks to a strong local industry, go straight from the ocean to your plate.

Nearby, play a round of golf on the Apollo Bay course. With the ocean on one side and the rolling Otway Hills on the other, the scenery will be as enjoyable as the game.

At sunset, walk along the harbour pontoons and enjoy the romantic atmosphere of a sky changing colours.

Apollo Bay Harbour is on the south coast of Victoria along the Great Ocean Road. The drive there from Melbourne takes around 3 hours.
