Situated in the heart of the Great Ocean Road’s iconic attractions including the Bay of Martyrs and Bay of Islands Coastal Park, Peterborough is a great family friendly destination with a shorefront playground and children's riding loop.
Place names around Peterborough are often tied to nearby shipwrecks. Look for names like Newfield Bay, Halladale Point, Antares Rock and Schomberg Reef.
Neighbouring Peterborough is the popular London Arch, an offshore formation in the Port Campbell National Park. This stack was formed by a gradual process of erosion, and until 1990 formed a complete double-span natural bridge.
The span closer to the shoreline collapsed unexpectedly on 15 January 1990, leaving two tourists stranded on the outer span before being rescued by helicopter. No one was injured in the event.
Family Friendly Peterborough
A great shorefront playground, children's riding loop and placid waters of Curdies Inlet immediately marks Peterborough as a family friendly destination.
The tennis courts are often alive with family challenge matches until the smell from the BBQ draws everybody from the court.
Peterborough Golf Course
Set right on the shoreline, with views of the battered coast and iconic limestone formations from just about every tee off, fairway and green, there's nothing like comparable to round at Peterborough anywhere in Australia, if indeed the world.
With no par 5's to wrangle back a few strokes, few walk away from the challenging Peterborough Golf Course with an air of success. Add the elements of the exposed course into the mix and a round on par might take a few attempts.
The vistas alone make Peterborough Golf Course a must on any Great Ocean Road golf tour.
