Coastal icons

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.

Family Fun

A great shore front 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. With careful supervision there are rock pools to explore, good fishing spots and plenty of options for walks and short drives to nearby attractions. Check out our 12 Apostles Visitor Inspiration Project and get in touch with your wild side on your next visit to the region.


Tee Off - Golf Courses

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 comparable to round at Peterborough anywhere in Australia, if indeed the world.



Pet friendly

Holidaying with your best animal friend on the Great Ocean Road can be an awesome experience. Sure, there are some areas where dogs are just not allowed to go, but there are some amazing spots where you can explore together.

In Peterborough there are areas where you can enjoy some off the lead time, this can depend on the time of day and the season. They are permitted on leashes in the area bounded by and including Hamilton and Irvine Streets, Schomberg and Hallladale Roads and the children’s playground and BBQ area on Irvine Street.


Local shipwrecks

Place names around Peterborough are often tied to nearby shipwrecks. Look for names like Newfield Bay, Halladale Point, Antares Rock and Schomberg Reef.
