Explore the unknown Great Ocean Road from your beautiful, restful home base.

(Old Peterborough Road)

An Authentic Farm Stay Experience

The journey along the spectacular Great Ocean Road ends for most people at Port Campbell, where they turn for home after visiting the Twelve Apostles.

Travel just 12 minutes further along and you’ll discover Peterborough, where the wild majesty of the Southern Ocean carving its way into the limestone cliffs is even more breathtaking. The lack of tourist crowds means the white, pristine beaches and coves are more accessible to visitors all year round. Certainly more pleasurable. There’s nothing like discovering something that feels special to you.

Your Host

Cath, your host, was born in Peterborough to one of the original settler families of the region. Her great, great grandfather James Irvine purchased land west of Peterborough in 1868,  which is still being farmed by the family today.

A stay at 100 OPR includes sharing her intimate knowledge of the best walks along the cliff tops, or in the nearby National Parks, the most satisfying places to eat and shop and how to access the nearby golf courses, rail trails, walking and cycling tracks.

Cath can share the best way to explore areas unknown to most travellers.


Getting Here

100 Old Peterborough Road (OPR) is simply the address with everything you could want from a stay on the Great Ocean Road. It is a home, not a hotel and has the warmth and comfort that seals the experience of a wonderful day of discovery. 

The home is set amongst beautiful gardens with views over the Curdies River with its birdlife and sweeping grasslands. Both large, double bedrooms enjoy this view through generous wrap around windows. The living area is substantial and sumptuous with a huge stone fireplace offering the appeal that only a blazing fire can bring to the night. Outside, the fresh air and spaciousness remind you this is life away from it all and in the evening, the sparkling, star filled sky seconds that emotion.

Pass the Time

A visit to Peterborough includes many healthy outdoor activities and these can include a game or two of golf.  A pleasant game on an uncrowded golf course is a big attraction for many and there are several opportunities, both in Peterborough and nearby. The experience of locally produced food also has major appeal and there are many specialities only the locals (and one day, you) know about. 


A stay at 100 OPR includes accommodation and a generous breakfast including farm fresh eggs and the Aga will slow cook delicious, home grown tomatoes.

100 OPR consists of 3 large bedrooms, 2 with super comfortable queen beds and the last with twin single beds. There is a spacious bathroom complete with bath.

Guests have access to the well equipped kitchen and spacious living/dining room. The living room has 2 roomy leather sofas and comfortable arm chairs surrounding a magnificent stone, open fire place. There are views across the garden and the Curdies River throughout.

As well as clear directions on how to experience the very best of Peterborough and surrounds, Cath also offers a concierge service for a minimal extra charge.
