A picturesque township on the banks of Curdies River 8km upstream of its mouth at Peterborough. Popular for boating, fishing and using as a base to explore Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles Gourmet Trail attractions.

Eat, Drink & Repeat

Food lovers are flocking to the 12 Apostles Gourmet Trail as the ultimate tasting tour. A place where food miles are measured in steps and the flavours of locally produced cheese, yogurt, berries, chocolate, fudge, abalone, crayfish, ice-cream, honey, wine, whisky, and beer provide an ideal accompaniment to a picture perfect hinterland drive.


Fishing local Rivers

From the volcanic plains and Otway Ranges to the coast our rivers and streams traverse a landscape of lakes, conical peaks, rainforest and coastal woodland on their journey to the sea. Take some time and throw in a line.


Fishing local Estuaries

Estuarine species to be targeted include bream, mullet, trevally, estuary perch, mulloway and short finned eel. The upper layers of water not far upstream of the mouth will occasionally yield brown trout.



From the gentle estuaries that flow into the Southern Ocean to the angling hot spots of our inland lakes this is a region that has a lot to offer for lovers of watercraft.


Paddling lakes, rivers, estuaries

For recreational paddlers, the volcanic lakes and estuaries generally provide more protected and predictable waters with plenty of opportunities to explore.


Tarmac, surf and turf loops, black and tan cyclo-cross epics and family friendly trails await. Check back here as we load some of our favourite rides or call into the Port Campbell Visitor Information Centre for local riding advice.
