The Gellibrand River makes a virtual island of the hilltop village of Princetown. It's lazy meander reflective of the flow of time through the valley, just a quick turn and a world away from the Great Ocean Road.

The township borders between both Port Campbell and Great Otway National Parks and is connected to the Great Ocean Walk via a picturesque wetland boardwalk.  Princetown offers fishing opportunities in the estuary and on the ocean beaches and direct access to National Park trails and lookouts, and plenty of magnificent beaches.
