The Location

A fantastic town at the start of the Great Ocean Road, this area is renowned for its world class surfing and attracts tourists and surfers in their thousands.

You are just over an hour from Melbourne and a short 20 minute drive from Geelong. 

Stroll along sandy beaches beneath towering cliffs or take in fine views of the coast from vantage points along the Surf Coast Walk. Don't be afraid of the name, snorkelling around Point Danger Marine Sanctuary is a great way to see some of the diversity of the area's underwater inhabitants.
