The Great Ocean Road
Visit a beautiful and undeveloped coastal town
PETERBOROUGH is one of the Great
Ocean Road's hidden gems.
The quiet town has the relaxed
feel that typified seaside towns years
before the explosion of the tourist
Anglers fish from the rocks for Aus-
tralian salmon and crayfish or in the
Curdies River for bream and mullet.
The lack of development is surpris-
ing given the town's proximity to the
remains of the famous London Bridge
(a rock span that collapsed on Janu-
ary 10, 1990), as well as The Arch, Pe-
terborough coastal reserve, the Bay
of Islands and the Bay of Martyrs.
The Bay of Islands Coastal Park
is a 32-kilometre stretch between
Peterborough and Warrnambool and
protects a variety of rare and threat-
ened flora and fauna.
Four shipwrecks provide plenty of
interesting settings for diving enthu-
Peterborough has a range of ac-
commodation plus fuel, groceries, a
bottle shop, a hotel, tennis courts and
a playground that visitors can enjoy
on a day trip or during a longer stay. Peterborough is only minutes away from the Bay of Island and Bay of Martyrs.
Conditions at Peterborough are great for surfers, less so for ships.
How about some olde-world charm!
Accommodation with full en suite, electric blankets

by excellent meals - lunch or evening.
