Colac Otway Shire is celebrating Apollo Bay’s recognition as a Wotif Aussie Town of the Year finalist and looking forward to welcoming visitors from across Australia now our secret is out!
Mayor Cr Kate Hanson said locals were well aware that Apollo Bay was worthy of a top-three spot on the online booking site’s Aussie Town of the Year list, and she expected the positive publicity would boost visitation from across the country.
“The promotion couldn’t have come at a better time as hospitality opens up, domestic travel becomes a focus and we showcase Apollo Bay to Australia,” Cr Hanson said.
“We have the Labor Day long weekend coming up, followed by Easter and it has so much to offer, whatever the weather and whatever your age or interest – Apollo Bay is simply an iconic Great Ocean Road tourist destination.
“Superb beaches, recreational fishing and boating, fantastic hospitality at our restaurants, hotels and cafes, and so many nearby attractions – waterfalls, bushwalking, Cape Otway Lightstation, the Otway Fly, the Twelve Apostles and now Wildlife Wonders, which opened last week.
“Our local community and anyone who has visited Apollo Bay knows what an amazing place it is, so it is really exciting that Apollo Bay is being recognised in Wotif’s 2021 Aussie Town of the Year Awards,” she said.
“Colac Otway Shire and our Apollo Bay community look forward to welcoming more visitors to our spectacular region all year round.”
