Port Campbell Suspension Bridge

The impressive Port Campbell suspension bridge is in fact the third suspension bridge constructed to provide community and visitor access across the Campbell’s creek estuary.

 

Access to Port Campbell suspension bridge is via 2m wide sealed path. The bridge spans Campbell’s Creek to a viewing platform and a 191 step staircase that flanks the western headland of Port Campbell. The staircase connects directly to the Port Campbell Discovery Walk. Visitors can then choose to turn north away from the coast to the Port Campbell lookout or continue south along the Discovery Walk along Point Sturgess headland. (4km return)

Access information:

  • The pathway to access the bridge is a 2.4m wide paved level surface (100m)

    The pathway, bridge structure and western viewing platform before the steps are all generally accessible and offer good visibility for those who cannot stand.

  • There are two accessible car parking spaces facing Port Campbell Bay 70m from the pathway to the bridge. Users please note that there is only one ramp to footpath level located at the front of the westernmost park (see photo) this may make it difficult to transfer from car to footpath without using the road to access an alternate break in the curb 7m away.
