Princetown

Just a quick turn and a world away from the Great Ocean Road.

The Prince of Princetown

The Gellibrand River makes a virtual island of the hilltop village of Princetown as it lazy meanders through the valley, just a quick turn and a world away from the Great Ocean Road.

The township borders both the Great Otway and Port Campbell National Parks and is connected to the Great Ocean Walk via a picturesque wetland boardwalk. Princetown offers fishing opportunities in the estuary and on the ocean beaches and direct access to National Park trails and lookouts. and plenty of magnificent beaches.
