Daysy Hill Country Cottages is a great base from which to explore the rugged coastline and shipwreck history, to relax or simply be re-inspired by the beauty and the peacefulness of a quiet country setting.
Port Campbell is situated at the heart of the internationally renowned attractions of the Great Ocean Road. The township has a backdrop of large limestone cliff faces in colours of bright reds from basalt soil to yellows and shades of brown, with pounding waves well known for excellent reef surfing. All of this melts into a peaceful bay which is a safe haven for the local crayfishing boats, swimmers and the ever popular surf club.
