Being close to the waterfront, seafood is an integral part of the cuisine offered at the Great Ocean Road. Delicacies from the depths of the sea can be enjoyed here, cooked to perfection by the food-loving Great Ocean Road locals. Portarlington mussels and Apollo Bay crayfish are extremely popular among tourists and locals alike. Apart from seafood, the Great Ocean Road is also renowned for wine and the region hosts more than 40 vineyards! Many of these vineyards have adjoining restaurants where tourists can sample these beverages while feasting on local fare.
