Great Ocean Walk
The Great Ocean Walk is one of the world's great coastal walks. A section of it passes directly in front of Seatrees Farm. Follow it one way and you walk to Apollo Bay, walk westward to the Bald Hill Lookout and Shelley Beach and you'll experience one of the best ocean views ever. Simply leave your cottage, take your own private track to the farmland and then you're on the Great Ocean Walk.

Coves and Beaches
Sandy coves, beaches and ancient rock shelves run continuously in front of Coast Cottages. They offer total freedom for dips, walks, games and smells for curious dogs!

Apollo Bay Township
Apollo Bay is a very dog-friendly township. Nearly all cafes and restaurants have outdoor tables for enjoyment of coffee and meals together. The walk to Apollo Bay from Coast Cottages is mainly along the Great Ocean Walk and beautiful beaches and takes about one hour.

Apollo Bay Market
Held every Saturday morning on the foreshore opposite the shops. Features
local produce, crafts and musicians. Great for fresh veges, eggs, cakes,
jams, relishes, plants and goodies.

waterfalls and dramatic coastline. Major features include the Twelve
Apostles, Maits Rest Rainforest reserve, Cape Otway Lightstation, The Otway
