Welcome to: Accommodation in Apollo Bay

Apollo Bay is affectionately known by the locals and by all those who visit on a regular basis as 'paradise by the sea' and the accommodation in Apollo Bay on offer is in keeping with this theme. This small, fishing village is well qualified to promote itself as paradise as it has all the prerequisites for just such a place. The town is located on the Great Ocean Road and within the arms of a crescent shaped bay and sits below the rolling green hills of the Otway Ranges and still retains the essence of its past; a small fishing village with a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Accommodation in Apollo Bay is nothing short of first class and will allow you to enjoy all that Apollo Bay and the Great Otway National Park has to offer in real comfort.
