Skenes Creek is an idyllic township located 6km east of Apollo Bay on a popular surf beach. If you’re camping, your can literally set your tent up right next to the beach, on crown land — offering a safe swimming beach without having to cross a road.
Just past Apollo Bay, off the world famous Great Ocean Road, Marengo Reefs Marine Sanctuary protects 12ha of ocean waters. About 150m offshore, this sanctuary protects a reef system known as Little Henty Reef. Two sections of the reef, the inner and outer reef, are usually exposed and separated by a narrow channel known as ‘The Gap’. Composed of sandstone they support wonderful inter-tidal and sub-tidal reefs which are packed with sea life.
The stretch of coastline between Lorne and Apollo Bay is some of the most picturesque in the region. The Great Ocean Road hugs the cliff-face as it winds through the Great Otway National Park and rolling farmland.
