From Stamps of the World

Apollo Bay is a coastal town (1,598 inhabitants in 2016) in southwestern Victoria, Australia. It is situated on the eastern side of Cape Otway, along the edge of the Barham River and on the Great Ocean Road, in the Colac Otway Shire. It is a tourist destination. A township on Apollo Bay was surveyed in 1853 and named Middleton. In the 1860s, farming land was made available and in the mid 1870s, the first blocks in the township were offered for sale. Middleton post office (with a fortnightly mail delivery) opened on 1 May 1873. In 1881, the town and post office was renamed Krambruk, and Apollo Bay in 1898.
