Holiday Spots of Victoria - Apollo Bay
Apollo Bay - Off the beaten track
After reading so many hubs on travel destinations in Australia, i have decided to add a couple of my own. Most tourists that come to Australia do Sydney, Queensland and some of Melbourne, mostly in that order. I hope what i show you encourages you to see more of my state of Victoria. I have lived all over Australia and everywhere i have lived has good points and bad points. Cairns is a beautiful place to live but there is not much surf but the fishing is great and weather is great all year round. The Victorian coast have some of the best surf in the world, the fishing is pretty good but the nice hot weather to enjoy the beach has only about a four or five month window. One of my favourite places in Victoria is Apollo Bay. It is a beautiful little fishing village three hours from Melbourne on the Great Ocean Road. There is some great beaches, and a real treat is the Otway Forest tree top walk. Just out of Apollo Bay is a place down a rain forest track called Paradise, and it really lives up to its name.
Apollo Bay is still a thriving fishing village and there is still lots of tasty fish to be caught of the pier in town. If all that seem to hard then head into town to visit some great fish and chip shop s of resturants to get your feed of fresh fish.
The Treetop Walk is a unique attraction which enables visitors to experience a 600 metre walk through beautiful warm temperate rainforest. Experience the sensation of being 25 metres above the forest floor. The walk commences at the visitor centre, which subtly introduces you to the rainforest, descending gently to the entry structure and onto the steel trussed tree walk. If you can get to area i highly recomend you do this. It is a one hours drive from Apollo Bay
Come and Visit
