Dusk and dawn provides the best light for photo opportunities. Join pilgrims from around the world paying silent homage at the 12 Apostles or find your own space to connect, along one of the most inspiring seascapes on the planet.
A link from the township to the recreation reserve, river mouth, a lovely picnic area and fishing platform on the Gellibrand River. View kangaroos on the river flats from the viewing platform in the township.
Located to the East of the 12 Apostles, Gibson Step offer another vantage. Prepare to be dwarfed by the enormity of the cliff line and offshore stacks. The sheer scale of natural sculpting at this site is humbling.
These incredible rock formations are a sight to behold. The Great Ocean Road & 12 Apostles offer a pilgrimage for visitors the world over and a visit to the famous monuments is an experience never to forget.
Loch Ard Gorge
It is impossible to walk these trails and not feel moved by the powers of nature that have shaped the shipwreck history that defines the area. Offshore stacks, blowholes and formations like the razorback and island arch make this precinct the one with the lot.
Port Campbell Jetty
Port Campbell’s weathered jetty juts defiantly into the bay, dwarfed by limestone cliffs and frequently by waves on the offshore reef. The jetty provides an ideal platform to watch the world go by.
Port Campbell Lookout & Discovery Walk
Just west of Port Campbell this viewing platform and coastal walk allow a sweeping view of Port Campbell Bay and the offshore reefs that provide its protection.
London Bridge has upper western and lower eastern viewing platforms to take in the sweeping vistas. Visitors were once able to walk (and at one stage drive) across the eastern span that once connected it to the mainland.
The walkway descending down to the platform offers an unusual perspective back towards the 12 Apostles. The more famous stacks can be viewed standing boldly against the cliff line they were carved from.
Near Peterborough, the Grotto is a stunning place to visit. The still clear water in the open cave casts reflections in contrast to the dynamic moving water of the ocean directly behind it.
Peterborough's sweeping foreshore & beach are just waiting for you to explore! The car park to the south of town offers views looking east across the wreck sites of the Schomberg and the Newfield. Interpretive signs bring to life the stories of local shipwrecks and the history surrounding them.
Bay of Martyrs Trail
A wonderful cliff top trail from Peterborough Golf Course to the Bay of Martyrs car park which provides access to some spectacular beaches and coves, especially popular at dusk and dawn. Visitors can leave their cars in town or in the Bay of Martyrs car park.
Bay of Martyrs
Are the stacks martyred sentinels guarding the land from the bold affront of the Southern Ocean or is reference made to the despicable events of nearby Massacre Bay where local aboriginals were herded off the cliff to their death? The naming divides, the views unite.
Bay of Islands
The pale limestone of this section of coast reflects a different quality of light and offers superior photographic opportunity in overcast conditions. Highly underrated!
