About the property

The Great Ocean Rd shack is situated in picturesque Peterborough which is right dab smack in the middle of some of the most spectacular scenery you will ever see. The shack sits on a river front property so you can look out over the water as you dine on your tea. The main beach is a 5min leisurely stroll along the riverbank and features stunning rock pools for swimming on hot days. Scenery all within 10mins drive include the gorgeous Bay Of Islands, The Grotto, London Bridge, The Arch and Port Campbell Jetty. A little further away but still close you can see the Twelve Apostles and Melba Gully (rainforest) where you can view glow worms on a damp night (a magical sight). Locally take in the breathtaking views along the scenic walk which includes the Bay of Martyrs, Hallidale Point, Worm Bay, the Rock Pools and a spectacular cliff top 9 hole golf course. Short driving distances to the townships of Port Campbell, Timboon and Warrnambool ensure plenty of shopping choices. The shack itself is fully contained including all linen. It can sleep up to 8 people, has 2 bedrooms, bathroom, laundry, lounge, dining room, kitchen and fenced verandah. It is pet friendly. A perfect destination for families or couples who are looking for a simple, quiet getaway or looking to explore the great outdoors - secluded and unspoilt beaches, fishing, swimming, diving, snorkeling, surfing, walking, playgrounds, golf and tennis ensure a fantastic time is had by all.

I loved the shack, reminded me of my mum and dads place back in Tassie. Took me back to my younger days, no Tv just the outdoors to explore. Ideally situated to explore all the GOR's many highlights.
