Best Things To Do In Apollo Bay

What is the best thing to do in Apollo Bay? You’re spoilt for choice!

Relaxing on the beach, exploring the Otways, going on a wildlife adventure, or sampling local produce at some of the best small businesses and markets are just some of the contenders for how to spend your time in this Great Ocean Road town.

Whether you’re staying at the luxurious Point of View Apollo Bay Villas or somewhere a little closer to town, these Apollo Bay attractions are all easy to get to but some will require a car.

Here are 31 of the best things to do in Apollo Bay to add to your itinerary whether you’re travelling for 1, 2, or 3 days along the Great Ocean Road.

1) Swim, Surf, And Kayak At Apollo Bay Beach

People enjoying the summer at Apollo Bay Beach in Victoria. There is a large green hill and trees in the background and red and yellow lifesaver flags on the beach.

One of the best things to do in Apollo Bay is to spend a day at the beautiful 3 km stretch of sand at Apollo Bay Main Beach – one of the most beautiful beaches on the Great Ocean Road.

The south end of the beach near Point Bunbury is a great spot for families and is patrolled by lifeguards during the peak periods so it’s a safe area for swimming, while the northern end is popular for surfing, kayaking and boating.

Apollo Bay Beach is easy to get to and has plenty of amenities to spend the whole day on the sands.

It’s one of the top Apollo Bay places to visit for relaxing and spending time with family.

2) Get Spectacular Views At Marriner’s Lookout

View of Apollow Bay and the Southern Ocean at Marriners Lookout.

There are plenty of free things to do in Apollo Bay, like the scenic Marriner’s Lookout. Best at sunset, it’s a great spot to get an overview of the town.

The Apollo Bay lookout offers pretty impressive views across the bay, beach, and ocean as it’s one of the highest points in Apollo Bay.

This makes it quite a steep drive to get to, but it’s just a 300-metre walk from the small car park so is easily doable with small children – our 3-year-old grandson had no trouble with it.

You can also hike 2 km up from the base of the hill if you don’t have access to a car.

Marriners Lookout Where: 155 Marriners Lookout Road, Apollo Bay 3233 When: Every Day 6.00 a.m – 10.00 p.m Entry: Free but there’s a donation tin to help maintain the track

3) Explore The Great Outdoors On A Wildlife Walking Tour

Take a wildlife nature walk with a conservation guide on a guided tour of the Great Otway National Park.

You will be supplied with binoculars and headsets as you search for wildlife and learn about the birds that call this area home.

I really like the headsets as it makes it easier to hear the guide, and you’re less likely to disturb the wildlife. Although, my footsteps can be heard a mile away!

The 1.4 kilometre (0.8 mile)path will give you an insight into the ecology of the area as it leads you through grassland, forests, bushland, and tree fern gullies.

Wildlife you’re likely to encounter include emus, kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, and the elusive bandicoot. Beautiful birdlife is in abundance.

You will also get to visit the Conservation Ecology Centre Research Hub and make a stop at the cafe for a light lunch and refreshments.

This tour is suitable for all abilities and is a fun activity the whole family will love.

  • Price: A$59.00
  • Wheelchair and stroller accessible
  • Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

4) Go On A Dusk Discovery Great Ocean Road Wildlife Tour

Another great wildlife tour in Apollo Bay is the Guided Dusk Discovery Tour .

Explore the wildlife sanctuary and learn the secrets of the bush from a local conservationist.

This small group tour takes in the stunning landscapes that overlook the ocean, allowing you to spot elusive Australian wildlife as it emerges for the evening.

These elusive nocturnal animals are usually hard to spot and photograph, but it’s a lot easier with a professional guide.

Along with the more well-known local fauna such as koalas, emus, and kangaroos, on this tour, you will also get the chance to see cute potoroos, bandicoots, and pademelons.

A mezze plate of local produce is also included in the tour, accompanied by a beer or wine – always appreciated!

But the best part is that 100% of the profits from the tour go back into supporting local conservation and research projects.

  • Price: A$95.00
  • Duration: 2.5 hours

5) Spend The Afternoon At Apollo Bay Foreshore Reserve

People enjoying a barbecue at the Apollo Bay Foreshore Reserve. One of the best things to do in Apollo Bay for families.

Right next to Apollo Beach is the Apollo Bay Foreshore Reserve. It’s one of the best places to visit in Apollo Bay for families.

Take food for a BBQ and make use of the public benches, picnic tables and easy beach access.

There’s also a playground for the little ones that will keep them amused for hours.

6) Go Big Or Go Home On The Great Ocean Walk

The epic 96.1 km Great Ocean Road Walk is a bucket-list-worthy achievement.

Starting from Apollo Bay the trail traverses west to the Twelve Apostles with an elevation gain of 2,839 metres.

Overnight stays are held in campgrounds, often right next to the beach, and it usually takes between six to eight days to complete in full.

If you don’t have that much time (or the energy!) you can break the walk down into more manageable day hike sections.

7) Make A Stop At Carisbrook Falls

Carisbrook Falls is just a 15 minute drive east from Apollo Bay along the Great Ocean Road.

It’s one of the easiest Otways falls to get to so definitely worth a visit while you’re hitting the Apollo Bay tourist attractions.

The Carisbrook waterfall is around 50 metres high with crystal clear water cascading down into a pool surrounded by lush plant and animal life.

The 300 metre hike to the falls is relatively easy, taking around 10 minutes – it can be completed by people of all ages.

Carisbrook Falls Where: Great Ocean Road, Grey River 3234 When: Always Open Entry: Free

8) Catch Waves On A Seal Kayak Tour

Close up photo of a seal holding his head high. A tour to see the seals is a popular Apollo Bay thing to do.

For a chance to spot local Australian fur seals head out on a Seal Kayak Tour of Marengo Reef Marine Sanctuary.

You will get to learn about the lifestyle patterns of fur seals and maybe even catch a wave or two on the way back.

The tour includes a wetsuit, life jacket, helmet, a local guide and kayak hire and departs from the Marengo Car Park, 1.5km west of Apollo Bay.

  • Price: From A$90.00 per person
  • Children must be over 12
  • Duration: 1.5 hours
  • Book here: Apollo Bay Surf & Kayak

9) Learn About Local History At The Apollo Bay Museum

Learn all about local shipwrecks, the construction of the Great Ocean Road, and the history of Apollo Bay township at the Apollo Bay Museum.

Apollo Bay Victoria was founded in the 1840s, when a whaling station was established at the western end of the bay at Point Bunbury.

The name comes from Captain Loutit’s boat, the Apollo, that sheltered in the bay during a storm in 1845.

Admission costs $5 for adults and just $1 for children, the museum is open Saturday afternoons from 2 pm – 5 pm, and Sunday mornings from 10 am – 1 pm.

Apollo Bay Museum Where: 6250 Great Ocean Road, Apollo Bay 3233 When: Sat 2.00 p.m – 5.00 p.m, Sun 10.00 a.m – 1.00 p.m, or by appointment Entry: Adults $5.00, Chilren $1.00 Phone: 0434 820 473

10) Chat With Locals At The Apollo Bay Farmers Market

The Apollo Bay Farmers Market is on the 3rd Sunday of every month, offering fine wine, fresh fruit and veg, delicious meats and local honey.
