Getting to Apollo Bay and exploring surrounding townships
Apollo Bay is located approximately 2 hours 20 minutes from the city of Melbourne, and approximately 1 hour 45 minutes from the city of Geelong by car.
The quickest way to get to Hampton on Apollo from Melbourne (or Geelong) is via Cape Otway Road. Look out for the Cape Otway Road turnoff after the Mt Duneed Estate Winery on the Geelong Ring Road (on the left hand side coming from Geelong or Melbourne). Let googlemaps do the rest!
For maximum spectacle, especially for first time visitors, the Great Ocean Road is a "must see" and will add approximately half an hour to the journey time.
Apollo Bay is a wonderful base from which to explore the Great Ocean Road with Lorne located 40 minutes from Apollo Bay, and Port Campbell / Shipwreck Coast located 1 hour further along the Great Ocean Road.
There are many world-class nature walks, and for adventurers, the Apollo Bay Visitor Information Centre is the starting point of the Great Ocean Walk, which takes its travellers through 91km of the rugged south west coast of Victoria. There are many sections of the walk that can be taken as a beautiful natural experience - best suited for moderately fit persons. Maits Rest provides a great option for prams an easy walking loop track.
There are many day trip and nature walk options for those wishing to take in the area's vast natural beauty including Lake Elizabeth, Cape Otway, Blanket Bay, Crayfish Bay and Johanna Beach. The Apollo Bay Visitor Information Centre is a useful visitors' portal and can provide advice on your options, depending on your interests.
