Outdoor activities great ocean road victoria


With some of the most highly rated public access courses in Australia located within the Great Ocean Road region it's little wonder many of the visitors arrive toting a set of golf clubs.

Some of the courses have accommodation on site and all have well regarded clubhouse facilities.  Torquay boasts The Sands, who host the annual Surf Coast Knockout, a PGA Tour event, located within the Peppers Resort complex.  Torquay is spoilt with a second high class course, at the RACV Resort - which can be found at Number One Great Ocean Road.

Play a round at Anglesea, with its resident kangaroo population, a must for anyone from abroad. These iconic Australian native animals live in the nearby forest and spend their days as unofficial greenkeepers lounging on the fairways.

Further west, Warrnambool is another challenging course, set amidst undulating terrain with greens that test the short game. Port Fairy offers coastal views in historic links style, built around natural sand dunes.
