Deer and Wildlife Park
Come and meet the deer at the Otway Ranges Deer and Wildlife Park. Established in 1987, the park was initially meant as an educational outlet. To day it operates as a deer and wildlife park where children have the chance to hand feed the deer as well as mingle with native animals such as Kangaroos, wallabies, emus and native birds as they wander through the park. Guided tours are always available and there is also access for the disabled.
The Shipwreck coast offers so much more than sightseeing, try your luck with some relaxing fishing at the mouth of the Gellibrand River, Port Campbell Pier, the Curdies River at Peterborough or one of the many beaches and rock outcrops along this section of coast line. Snapper, whiting, trevally, sweep, garfish, squid, Australian salmon, shark and Cray's (license required) are some of the more common species caught along the Shipwreck Coast. Safety should always be your major priority if fishing from rocky headlands.

The best conditions for surfing in and around Port Campbell are when the swells are moderate and a north to north-west wind is blowing. Make sure you always check the conditions from a high vantage point before surfing.
Diving has become a popular attraction with the loch Ard (a popular boat dive) and the Port Campbell Bay offering great underwater scenery and marine life. 
The Loch Ard Shipwreck Museum in Port Campbell offers a great opportunity to see relics from the numerous ruins in the area. The Museum also doubles as a information centre.
