Boat Bay Port Campbell Great Ocean Road

Q1 - Best tip for foodies .

Wye general store! Amazing coffee - but there are some little gems long the coast from back in the day, Kenneth River general store is my favourite post-surf snack spot! And you can’t go past Wye river pub for a meal and the view! If you’re in Apollo Bay do yourself a favour and and find Hello Coffee.  

Q2 - Best view for sunrise or sunset .

Depending where you are on the coast I love all the lookouts; top 3:

Bells beach south side car park

Teddy’s lookout Lorne

Mariners lookout Apollo bay

Q3 - Best place to soothe your mind (can be walk, run, ride, yoga, relax)

So many gorgeous little art galleries along the coast - Aireys inlet, Apollo bay port Campbell. Any of the national park trails - there are so many along the great ocean walk.

Q4 - Best tip for top fun

Oooo Surfing, everywhere! Haha. Kayaking with the seals in Apollo bay. Otway lighthouse, the Otway fly - festivals in all the small towns! 

Q5 - Best Summer tip

Torquay night markets are the funnest place to be during the summer! 

Q6 - Best Winter tip

Winter wild music and arts festival in Apollo Bay! 

Q7 - A secret you’re willing to share (eg. Best surf break, beach to yourself)

Hmmm, I think the glow worms up the back of Kenneth River are a spectacular site that doesn’t get seem too often!
