Well, technically speaking, it was Skenes Creek which is around 5km before Apollo Bay on the Great Ocean Road.
We rented an enormous six bedroom house and spent a week exploring Apollo Bay, Skenes Creek and other parts of The Great Ocean Road.
Although the weather wasn’t brilliant (you never can predict southern Victoria, even in the middle of summer), we still had an amazing time.
Into the house we crammed 9 adults, one child and 3 dogs. There was still plenty of room to spare.
Cooking for Christmas was made much easier for the fact of having two completely separate kitchens and living areas, so prep etc could be done efficiently.
The rock formations just across the road also make for great walks, and the dogs absolutely loved exploring through the nooks and crannies, while getting a good dose of sea air.
