Peterborough is at the western end of the Great Ocean Road, nestled between the Bay of Islands Coastal Park and Port Campbell National Park, conveniently located for visitors who want to stay in a town close to the major coastal attractions. It is central to some of the most unique coastal scenery that is famous throughout the world for spectacular cliffs and rock formations. Set on the mouth of the Curdies River and the picturesque Bay of Martyrs, the town is surrounded by numerous unspoilt beaches including Newfield Bay and Crofts Bay, as well as surfing and fishing beaches. Peterborough is a quiet and peaceful place to relax all year round. To the west, the Bay of Islands is a photographer's delight, especially at sunset. The Curdies River and coastal dunes are great for bird watchers, where numerous species can be viewed, including the Rufous Bristlebird and Hooded Plover. Whalers and sealers visited Peterborough in the early 1800s, but Dr. Daniel Curdie was one of the original settlers in 1840. Peterborough has a rich maritime history, with a number of ships wrecked immediately off the coast including the Falls fo Halladale, Young Australia, Schomberg, and the Newfield. Throughout its history, Peterborough has served the inland pastoral communities as a family-friendly holiday resort. In the recent decades it has become more popular, offering both spectacular coastal views as well as the scenic Curdies River Inlet with excellent beach and river fishing including sensational bream and salmon
