"Separation Creek Serenity"

Separation Creek is a very special locality located 15 minutes past Lorne, just before the bend heading toward larger Wye River. Sep Creek offers a more secluded and peaceful atmosphere as it is surrounded by Otway National Forest and the land cannot be built out. There's a magnificent beach good for surfing, swimming and beach combing, plus it's dog friendly, but observe beach walking times on posted signage. There are resident koalas in the gum trees, and the cacophony of bird song in the morning is evident of the rich flora and fauna of the area. You can walk the track to Wye River where there are two choices of restaurant - the excellent Wye Hotel with superb views of the glorious beach sunsets, or the newer Wye General Store, which also sells a good selection of staples and gourmet items. The air is so pristine here, and on a cloudless night the vast starry sky is just magic. There are several wonderful accommodations with all the mod cons to choose from at Holiday Great Ocean Road - www.holidaygor.com.au - and many of them are pet friendly. Heaven on earth: it just doesn't get any better than this.
