The Twelve Apostles – Visit Victoria
The Apollo Bay Market
The Apollo Bay market is well worth a visit. Held every Saturday morning on The Foreshore by the Tourist Information Office it features a diverse range of local produce from eggs to glass ware. The market is a must for anyone looking to sample a flavour of this friendly town or track down a unique souvenir of their trip.
Visit Cape Otway Lightstation.
Built in 1848, the lighthouse is the oldest on the Australian mainland and is well worth a visit. There is a $14.50 adult admission fee ($7.50 kids). Good value for money is the Lightkeeper Shipwreck Discovery Tour, a 4 wheel drive tour that takes in the cape, the lighthouse and the sites of many shipwrecks.
