Wow this was just awesome and the visitors centre was great. Very busy with people pushing in front of you for a better view but that’s what happens. It’s definitely worth the visit

Well worth the visit. Even though there were lots of visitors it’s roomy enough to be able to get great vantage points of the stunning views

The highlight of the Great Ocean Road, plenty of parking, easy access on well designed pathways, fantastic photographic opportunities. Lots of people but still a great place to visit and easy to see the landscape. A number of interesting walks and great vegetation.

An amazing realistic view of how strong Mother Nature can be! 3 hours driving from Melbourne(if you go there straight away) but it’s great if you can stop by Geelong and Torquay maybe! Beautiful places, beautiful Victoria :)

We pulled into the small parking lot at the top of Gibson’s Steps thinking this was where we were supposed to be to see the Twelve Apostles. We went down to the beach but only a couple of the rock “apostles” are visible from here....More
