Larger townships like Lorne and Apollo Bay can offer a more diverse range of things to see and do. In Lorne for example, there are the family-famous foreshore trampolines as well as more difficult ropes courses and ziplines for teenagers with a sense of adventure! There are also spas, restaurants and pubs for parents who want to unwind. But in our smaller towns there are different opportunities – such as spending some quality family time together exploring the local history and galleries, or sharing a delicious cake in a café overlooking farmlands.

No matter where you decide to stay there are multitudes of activities on the Great Ocean Road throughout the year. Check out our What to See and Do page to learn more!
