What to do at the Bay of Islands

A coastal park stretching 32km long in Victoria’s southwest region. The Bay of Islands is on the Great Ocean Road, between Warrnambool and Peterborough. Though the 12 Apostles are the most iconic towering limestone stacks, the Bay of Islands are just as impressive.

Many viewpoints offer fantastic photo opportunities. Sheer cliffs are breathtaking to see, and the wildflowers that bloom in spring add an extra charm.

Fishing – Salmon, gummy sharks, flathead, whiting. Whatever your preferred catch – there are plenty of opportunities to fish along the Great Ocean Road

Whale watching – between May and October you can see Southern Right Whales as they migrate through the Southern Ocean

Spot wildlife – native wildlife can be seen in various locations, both marine and on land

Peterborough Walk – Hike along the top of the cliffs from a golf course to Halladale Point. Watch the surfers below and try to spot the elusive bandicoot.
