Timboon VIC


Postcode: 3268

Timboon is a town in Victoria, Australia approximately 235 km south-west of Melbourne. The main industries are dairying, forestry, and the production of lime.

Timboon has a population of approximately 850 people.

Sixteen kilometres from the fishing village of Port Campbell and the Southern Ocean, Timboon is an attractive, timbered town which services local dairy farmers. You can taste and buy some of the local produce at Timboon Farmhouse Cheese on the southern limits of the town.

To take the scenic, Old Timboon Railway Line Walk you’ll need a car and driver to drop you at the starting point and pick you up at the end of the 10km track up to four hours later.

The scenery is also a bonus on the short drive from Timboon to Port Campbell which is at the centre of the Shipwreck Coast and just a short drive from the camera friendly The Twelve Apostles. Eighty ships and hundreds of lives have been lost on the unforgiving stretch of coast flanked by the Great Ocean Road and 25 of those craft have gone down between Moonlight Head and Port Fairy. You’ll find the Otway Ranges Deer and Wildlife Park about 20km east of Port Campbell.
