The Mornington Peninsula may be best known for its wineries but there is something for everyone to taste, see and explore in this region, a little over an hour from Melbourne. On our first visit to this region we couldn’t have picked a better day for the weather. The coastal vistas were at their most vivid blue hues as we stopped to admire the scenery at lookouts on the way up to Arthurs Seat, the highest point of the peninsula.
Apollo Bay is another destination on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria that wows you from which ever direction you arrive. The town that hugs the bay spreads upwards with houses built on the hillsides giving panoramic views of the town and bay. The Pisces Big 4 Apollo Bay Holiday Park also takes advantage of its position, being nestled into the hillside with just the Great Ocean Road separating it from a coastal walking path and the ocean. The caravan park has all the amenities you would expect with the bonus of a pool and an excellent play area for the kids including a bike track and basketball court.
