OTWAY COAST The most spectacular part of the Great Ocean Road

Kennett River

Kennett River is 170 km south west of Melbourne and approximately 35 min from Lorne. It lies about 5 km after Wye River when driving from Lorne. Kennett River has beautiful walking tracks, many Koalas in the trees all around the town as well as being a paradise for varied birds and other wildlife.

Kennett River is a popular swimming and surfing beach. The town is small and quiet with a general store / café called Koala Cove Café. Known as just “Kennett” to the locals this is a very relaxing place for a quiet getaway.

There is a lovely walking track along the Kennett River up through the valley. Its starts near the Café and Dogs are allowed on leash.
