On the south west coast of Victoria is the little place of serenity
Nestled between the Otway mountains and the sea
A quiet fishing village in the cold of winter
I have ridden or sailed there innumerable times
Down the Great Ocean Road or over the Otway Mountains
In the safe harbour amongst the working boats
In a tent or a cabin
I listen to the roar of the surf, the winds at the edge of the roaring 40’s
or the silence of a fishing village in winter
Apollo Bay is quiet hamlet where I can take to the surf or walk through the giant forests.
Its a place that has offered me serenity and peace since I was just a boy, travelling here and camping in the dunes under a tarpaulin strung from my uncles car.
A place of peace and regeneration.
