The Location

The Otaways: Hit the waters of the southern ocean, wander the coast and explore petrified rain forests full of waterfalls, ferns and crystal clear streams. Adventure over for the day; settle in to enjoy the fruits of the sea caught by local fishermen.

Coastal country…..

Swim, dive, surf and paddle out in the pristine coastal waters. Take a dip at the beach, climb aboard a surfboard or kayak, and get up close to local seal colonies. Anglers have plenty on offer too, with a deep-sea fishing adventure at the top of the list.

For the landlubbers, there are sunset beach rides on horseback, gift shops, galleries and tea houses along with countless culinary delights to choose from. Fishing is an important local industry so seafood is always on the menu at the local cafes and restaurants. For dinner with ocean views, try Chris's at Beacon Point, which sits high in the hills overlooking the sea. Got a taste for fine seafood? Visit in February for the Apollo Bay Seafood Festival.
