Apollo Bay: If wanting budget accommodation for the Friday night before the race entrants should contact the Apollo Bay Hostel directly to book: Apollo Bay Backpackers Lodge. This is budget style accommodation with 4 bunks to a room with shared bathroom facilities (recently upgraded bathrooms). These beds are at backpacker rates (confirm with Hostel) and are within walking distance of the start. Otherwise there are many other options including the Best Western which is right behind the hotel.

Port Campbell: is only 12km from the finish-line at the 12 Apostles. Runners are encouraged to stay the Saturday night post race in Port Campbell so you can attend the race presentation and breakfast on Sunday morning. The volunteers and most runners stay at the Port Campbell Hostel. If you would like to stay at the Port Campbell Hostel you need to contact the Hostel directly: (03) 5598 6305. Be sure to tell them you are part of the race. Once the Hostel rooms are full, or if you prefer more privacy, there are many other options available here GreatOceanRoadAccommodation and Otways Accommodation

Other Accommodation Options

As Apollo Bay is primarily a tourist town there are many options for accommodation. It is a good idea to book early though to ensure best value for money. There are many recommendations on the Tourism sites listed on the Useful Links page.

Port Campbell has many accommodation options besides the Hostel. 

Nestled along the Great Ocean Road near Johanna are The Boomerangs, stylish and award winning accommodation.
