UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT We are the closest hostel to the 12 Apostles, Australia’s most picturesque and iconic tourist attraction, a 5 minute drive or an hour and a half hike along the Great Ocean Road Walking track. Leaving Melbourne, it is a scenic 3 hour drive along the Great Ocean Road. Great accomodation, clean and simple at reasonable prices, a common room, fully equipped kitchen and lounge area. Large balcony with beautiful views and an outdoor cooking area perfect for those wanting to cook their own feast and enjoy the atmosphere. A few hundred metres to the Gellibrand River for a swim, and a short walk to Champagne Heads, a giant secluded beach with magnificent views, which offers the opportunity to see some of our most famous wildlife including kangaroos, ecidnas, many types of birds and even seals. We offer free breakfast and off street parking and we are just across the road from the local pub which also offers great meals. We have 24 hour contact, so feel free to call and arrive late.
