  • Spend some time at Loch Ard Gorge in the late afternoon – a beautiful place with a remarkable story. Sunset is known as “Golden Hour” – spend it at the 12 Apostles or if you want a quieter experience that is just as dramatic head to the Bay of Islands lookout or the Port Campbell Jetty.

Day 3:

Gibson Steps Beach
