Repeats might have to be the way to go. And Ceres >>>> Cementies

Benwerrin is good - the one out from Apollo Bay is, for me, better. Not especially because there's less traffic.
And the WC course hits 15% - done it a few times. Damn speed limits coming down through Queens Park! too easy to overtake cars doing 60.

Then there's a little bump - Ceres - and two more climbs to get to Devon road.
Not the easiest little route to take, especially only 5km or so into your ride.
There's no climb I know of around Skene's Creek, and that's quite a ways from Apollo Bay at any rate?
Whatever the case, we did the Apollo Bay climb + Turtons Track so 100km had a bit over 1700m of climbing. I like the hills (I'm just not quite there as far as a 'climbers build' goes)

Skene's Creek is the small township ~6 kms east of Apollo Bay. And the Apollo Bay to Colac Rd goes up from there, to Tanybryn Junction with a ~15 km climb.
If you're down at 'the Bay' try the climb to Marriner's Lookout
