One of many nice stops along the great ocean road and this was one of our favorites. Another impressive show by nature which carved this impressive cliff formation over thousands of years.

One of the best spots on the great Ocean road. Walk down to the inlet, read the story, take pics and take in the great Southern Ocean in all its power. A must to do and see. Can be very busy.

Awesome spot to drop into and have a look. It was a very cold day with strong winds and massive seas which added to the spectacular nature of this area. We were caught in a massive hail storm for about 10 minutes but managed to...More

The first view I saw was the left side and immediately the right side. In the middle the ocean came in unhindered. That was cool! The cliffs were huge! There had been a shipwreck many centuries ago. Only two people survived of the 54 people...More

You can view this attraction from the top with good access for all mobility aides, however the most lovely views and a couple really awesome caves (can't access unless you'd like to risk your life doing something very stupid) are at the bottom. Stairs are...More

Drove further down the coast to Loch Ard Gorge. Wonderful access with my walker. It is hard to describe this impressive gorge from its narrow entrance to the ocean, to the waves crashing onto the bases of the towering cliffs forming sea caves, to the...More

Just down the road from the Twelve Apostles, this is an amazing inlet when the surf is running. The onshore wind was pushing the sea into the inlet and it was spectacular. Only 150 metres very easy walk from the carpark to the viewing platform...More

Very nice place to visit and even to stay a little bit to appreciate the beach and the scenery. I recommend to spend some time on the beach and admire the site.

Don't only stay on Twelve Apostles if you are in Great Ocean Road, but also visit here at sea level. It is beautiful.

Yes it is possible, but watch your step as the stairs can get Sandy and slippery. Also do not turn your back on the water as some rogue waves can come up quickly!

I think it would be possible but not easy. As expressed, the views from the top are great. But it is definitely worth it to walk to the bottom as well. You can make that decision when you get to the top view and see how... More

The Great Ocean Road is very winding, it may not look far but you will need to take at least two days to enjoy the trip. I would suggest either Port Campbell, or if you can extend your trip for another day, travel on to the... More
