Great Ocean Road Guides

Sea Zen Food Lovers Guide cover


As the owners of Sea Zen we know our guests like to be informed about the many things and local experiences our region has to offer. We love nothing better than continuously researching and writing Great Ocean Road Guides for our guests on the many wonderful things to do and see down here on this spectacular part of the coast.

Some local veggies

Some local veggies from the Apollo Bay Farmers’ Market.

We have also been exploring the best places to buy fresh local produce and the places to eat and have the best coffee places in the Otways and on the Great Ocean Road for over 20 years. We have lived here on the coast fulltime since  2009.

In the Sea Zen Food Lover’s Guide we share with you our favourite places, some well known, others off the beaten track. We hope you have the same pleasure we have had eating at these places of delight.

The Food Lover’s Guide lists over 20 places in Wye River, Lorne, Apollo Bay and throughout the Otways and along the Great Ocean Road where we have had personal memorable enjoyable food experiences and a few where our guests have absolutely raved about them.

There are so many things to see and do while you are here with us, so many fun, adventure or relaxing experiences.

Some of these activities are obvious, but many others are less visible but still a memorable experience to treasure always. As locals we know the secret insider stuff – all about how you can make the most of your holiday. We know your time is precious and we can share hints and tips, so we invite you to checkout our Insider’s Guide to activities on the Great Ocean Road.

We list over 20 different and exciting things for you to explore, some are just outside our front door, others a full day of vigorous walks or adventurous drives.
