It amazes me that even during peak times it is possible to put first footprints in the sand and share a knowing smile with the small handful of visitors you may encounter.
There is nothing like an early morning photo shoot or a late evening walk to set the scene or round out an amazing summer's day.
The reward for those choosing to stay in the area around Port Campbell National Park is the opportunity to visit the iconic sites at the times of day when the light is at it's best and the foot traffic is at it's quietest.

The bulk of day visitation to the Port Campbell National Park occurs between 11am and 6.00pm during January; ironically this is the time of the day when the light for photography and viewing is at it's flattest.
Why not pick up a book; find a spot on the beach or visit a local farmgate or cellar door at these times? You could even do like a kangaroo and take a nap during the middle of the day and get active at dusk and dawn.
Hop to it!
