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.
Prepare to be dwarfed by the magnitude of the cliff-line and offshore stacks. The sheer scale of natural sculpting evident at this site is humbling. In local vernacular, Gog and Magog are the names given to the two offshore stacks that may be viewed from both the viewing platform and (tide and sea permitting) from beach level. These are not considered part of the 12 Apostles.
In response to the pandemic Coronavirus COVID-19 The Twelve Apostles Visitor Centre and lookouts will be closed to visitors immediately 20/03/2020. The carpark and toilets at the Visitor Centre will remain open. There is currently a non-essential travel ban being enforced in Victoria to slow the spread of the virus. Please stay at home and stay safe wherever you are.
Loch Ard Gorge
Offshore stacks, blowholes and the indescribable beauty of formations like the Razorback and Island arch make this precinct the one with the lot.
When the running is this good you just have to share. Our favourite runs link sections of the Great Ocean Walk with gravel roads and link tracks that allow you to run one way (east to west) along Victoria's finest coastal trail.
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 Bay
Port Campbell Bay presents a gently sloping family friendly profile sheltered from the bulk of Southern Ocean swell. Waters inside its iconic pier are generally suitable for swimming and wading and are patrolled in season.
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, pre 1990 was a double-spanning bridge connected to the mainland. The stack was created over hundreds of years, with the weaker layers toward the base being eroded away by wind and water to form the two bridges.
The Arch perches precariously mounted on a harder rock platform proud of the water in small to medium swell. In large swells its formation becomes more evident as waves mount the platform, thick heavy tomes gliding sleekly through the opening and cascading out the other side.
Many a visitor holds a special memory of their visit to the Grotto. Spray from waves can cast a fine mist over the low viewing area; sunshine does the rest filling the air with rainbow delights.
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.
Anybody who has ever backed a trailer needs to have a look at this ramp. Lots of offshore stacks are visible in this sheltered bay.
Childers Cove, Sandy Cove and Murnanes Bay offer wonderful seascapes and an impression of relative isolation even in peak times.
Walk in the wild then slip into comfort. Relax in a village that welcomes you at day's end!
