There are loads of things to do and places to see in the region
for families. With so much coastline, well serviced towns, villages
and regional centres and a hinterland area that has some of the
best attractions in Australia, there are activities to suit every
type of family, and family member.
Rockpool rambling and beach activities at any number of the
beaches in the region are popular. You can learn to surf, boogie
board, paddle in the waves or try skim boarding in the shallows.
Build sandcastles, play cricket or just enjoy a picnic or ice cream
on the sand, the beach is the perfect place for families to spend
As well as Victoria's biggest theme park Adventure Park at
Wallington, there are some fantastic attractions suitable for
families. The Otway Fly tree top walk is exhilarating, and the
dinosaurs hiding in the forest below are popular with kids. There
are mini golf courses, a giant maze, loads of playgrounds and places to swim. Pick your own
berry farms, animal sanctuaries and a vintage steam train operate
in the region, and many of the museums and heritage attractions
have specific programs to keep the kids engaged and entertained -
learning by stealth.
Sporting activities are also great for families - horse riding
tours in the hinterland, bike riding on designated tracks, swimming
or water sports, there are places to do all these things and
