Sandpiper Motel Opens Its Gates To Cool Winter Activities on The Great Ocean Road


Victoria, Australia (August 2011) - The Great Ocean Road, which has recently been heritage listed and placed under the protection of the federal government of Australia, is home to some of the most spectacular sights and sounds in the Apollo Bay area.  The combination of sea and lush rainforests has made The Great Ocean Road a major attraction among vacationers seeking a wide variety of activities during the holidays.  As the cold winter season approaches, establishments in the region prepare for this year’s winter activities. 
In anticipation of visitors flocking to The Great Ocean Road, Sandpiper Motel - a premier accommodation facility in Apollo Bay , announces its new and improved facilities and is accepting reservations for the winter period (see for details).
Activities worth checking out:
Whale Watching
A few days ago, the Apollo Bay Visitor Information Centre reported the sighting of several Southern Right whales, including a mother with calf.  Experts say the whales become a lot more active in the winter season.  While whales are rarely seen, visitors to the area in winter are rewarded as they are quite often spotted splashing around and leaping out of the water.
Whale watching is one of the most popular attractions on The Great Ocean Road, as the rarely seen giant sea creatures make their way from Antarctica to Warrmambool to give birth to their young.
As of the 15th of August, reports indicate that Southern Bluefin Tuna have not been sighted or caught in the last couple of weeks.  Good catches, sometimes weighing over 100kgs, were frequent during the month of June and July.  The disappearance of the Bluefin Tuna is normal at this time of the year.

But there is no reason to despair.  Fishing enthusiasts report that the area still has plenty to offer, including Salmon, Gummie Shark, Snapper and Morwong.
The Apollo Bay area also grants easy access to the following:

  • Beach
  • Apollo Bay Golf Club
  • Vista Restaurant
  • Apollo Bay Pub

For the winter season, Sandpiper Motel offers Midweek Special deals - slashed rates available from Sunday to Thursday.
