I have never heard of Timboon before, not even after I have been to The Great Ocean Road a few times or more.
We accidentally happened to find this gourmet food haven when my sweet toothed husband saw a sign on the road that said ‘Ice Creamy’. Of course we have to stop, do a U-Turn and gather information on how to find this unexpected dessert shop in The Great Ocean Road. Fifteen minutes later and fifteen kilometers inland from the main highway we found ourselves in the centre of a small town called Timboon.
This little town should be in highlighted as a must stop for those visiting The Great Ocean Road. Adding Timboon to your itinerary balances out the whole Great Ocean Road trip after experiencing the coast, land, sky and sea.
Spend half or the whole day discovering this artisan haven. Without much expectations, this stop is surely one of those that you will always be thankful you made a U-Turn.
Start off at the Timboon Railway Shed Distillery.
Try out the local whiskey and spirits by joining a tasting tour.
Enjoy a delectable-superb meal at the shed.
Head next door for a taste of Timboon Fine Ice Cream.
All ingredients are local, fresh and farm made, just how every ice cream should be.
Follow the Gourmet Trail Map
Visit the food artisans of the area and try out their local produce of cheese, chocolate, berries, milk and so much more.
Rent a bike
Gear up and follow the trail map to Camperdown. Bike 5km under the shade of tall eucalyptus trees and maybe be lucky enough to spot a koala. Ride through a trestle bridge and explore a baby waterfall nearby.
