Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: 13th Beach, Barwon Heads, City of Greater Geelong, Victoria 2004 Australia

13th Beach is famous among all world professional surfers as the place they train when the Bells Beach Pro surfing competition is on each Easter. You will see rugged coast & cliff-line, pristine water, great waves and beautiful beaches - you'll also get to explore the beach and some of the surrounding rock pools. We have morning tea and grab a coffee from the stunning At The Heads restaurant sitting over the Barwon River lookout out the heads to Bass Straight. Then head to Ocean Grove beach where you'll get to hear about beach swimming safety from the local surf life savers and have a swim in the waves. Spend some time on the beach like a local exploring rock pools at low tide and see the boilers of the SS Orungal which sank in 1940 in treacherous weather.
