13 MUST-SEE PLACES ALONG THE GREAT OCEAN ROAD
If you thought the 12 Apostles were going to be the only highlight of your Great Ocean Road trip, thank again.
PORT FAIRY FOLK FESTIVAL
Close friends of ours live close to Port Fairy and for years we’ve heard stories and seen photos from the “Folkie”. Going in with high expectations was risky but even still we were blown away - this festival is everything it’s ramped up to be plus more.
APOLLO BAY SEAFOOD FESTIVAL
In 2018, the Apollo Bay Co Op celebrates 80 years of delivering fresh seafood straight from boat to belly.
CADEL EVANS GREAT OCEAN ROAD RACE
“In 2017, the Cadel Evans Road Race was elevated to feature on the UCI Road Cycling World Tour. Given my recent performance in the Amy’s Gran Fondo, I was not surprised when I received a race pack and invitation in the mail. A 163km circuit through the scenic Geelong and Surf Coast regions racing the best riders in the world… I wish.
FALLS FESTIVAL LORNE
Driving through the front gate of Falls Festival is like entering a little bubble that’s completely isolated from the outside world.
The UPWELLING FESTIVAL PORTLAND
The community of Portland made a “call to the sea” to officially open the Bonney Upwelling season. I hadn’t the slightest idea what an “upwelling” was but the trumpets and chanting indicated it was a pretty big deal. Market stalls, food trucks, jumping castles and a music stage filled the foreshore. There was atmosphere, there was sunshine and I was intrigued.
