The stretch of coastline between Lorne and Apollo Bay is some of
the most picturesque in the region. The Great Ocean Road hugs
the cliff-face as it winds through the Great Otway National Park
and rolling farmland.
Small townships along the way have generally sprung up where a
freshwater stream empties into the ocean. These hamlets are
often a great base to explore the hinterland, enjoy the surf
beaches or just enjoy a more leisurely pace and quieter atmosphere
than in the larger towns.
