Your guide to Timboon
All About Timboon
Timboon is a small township in the Western District of Victoria that’s well-known as the home of many Victorian dairy farms. The area is a major producer of Australian milk, cheese, and ice cream so while you are here, you can try some of the best dairy products in the state. These farms are surrounded by gorgeous rolling hills and pristine bushland, providing the perfect spot for bushwalking, cycling, or horse riding. One of the area's most popular trails is the Rail Trail, a 40-kilometre trail along an old railroad line.
Nearby, you can also find the beautiful Fort Campbell National Park, home of some of Australia's most stunning coastal rock formations including the Twelve Apostles and London Bridge. In the evening, you can see little penguins, short-tailed shearwaters, and whales at the park. You can easily view the rock formations from the world-famous Great Ocean Road, which stretches for 664 kilometres along the Southern Ocean.
How do I get around Timboon?
The closest airport to Tamboon is Melbourne Airport (MEL). From there it is about a 2.5 hour drive to Tamboon. It is possible to take public transportation but most routes require multiple connections. Within Timboon, it is possible to walk between many of the restaurants and bars but you will need a car to visit the surrounding park areas due to limited public transport options. Alternatively, it is possible to take local buses to other cities for onward connections to Melbourne or to stops along the Great Ocean Road.
When is the best time to stay in a holiday rental in Timboon?
The weather can change significantly throughout the year so the best time to book your Timboon accommodation largely depends on what you want to do during your stay.
The summer months are warm and sunny, ideal for outdoor activities such as kayaking and bushwalking. Although this is the busiest time of the year, it is also one of the best times to see the short-tailed shearwaters arriving at the nearby Mutton Island to roost. The spring and the fall are also enjoyable times to visit as the area is a little quieter. The winter can get a bit chilly and windy but this is a good time to catch the Southern Ocean at one of its most dramatic times. The weather can vary greatly based on what part of the shoreline you are on.
What are the top things to do in Timboon?
Great Ocean Road
This spectacular scenic drive passes by Timboon as it makes its way from the cosmopolitan city of Melbourne to the historic fishing village of Port Fairy. The route gives you a great opportunity to check out the Southern Ocean and the jaw-droppingly beautiful rock formations that have been carved along the shoreline. The entire route takes around 9.5 hours to drive but make sure to schedule plenty of time to make stops along the way.
Port Campbell National Park
Lying 30 kilometres south of Timboon, the Port Campbell National Park features the dramatic rock formations London Bridge, the Grotto, Loch Ard Gorge, and the Twelve Apostles, as well as opportunities to explore the beaches and cliffs along the coastline. This is a great place to watch the sunset as the limestone transforms into a colorful palette of red, orange, pink, and yellow.
Timboon is an important centre for the dairy industry and you can get incredibly high-quality cheese and ice cream here. A bevy of cafes and eateries that serve local products have popped up, making Timboon a great spot for dairy lovers.
