It is a short walk to the clifftop edge of the gorge. One can see ocean waves crashing into rocks, but not the ship that sank here many years ago.

The sight and sound of the sea and surf here gives a great feeling for the power of the Southern Ocean. Everything here is just on a slightly bigger scale than in the UK.

When you explore Port Campbell National Park, you get to see many awesome structures. One of these, the Loch Ard Gorge is quite spectacular, with the ocean waves squeezing in. You will get to see this and other beautiful sights during your great ocean road...More

Must visit for anyone on the Apostles tour. But I thought the Bay of Matyrs was more spectacular at the other end of the Ocean Road.

Loch Ard Gorge is a short drive from the Twelve Apostles and I think it is just as impressive. There are a few overlooks at the top of the cliffs and stairs to walk down to the beach into the gorge. We spent about an...More

This is one of the Apostles at Port Campbell. Better read a little before you go this place then you understand well. There are many stories about this Apostle but the actual truth is that this is created by sea erosion. Beautiful creation of the...More

Very windy. Fierce waves breaking over dramatic cliff edges. Stunning architectural rock formations. Good parking. Well laid out and informative guides and paths.

There was a storm and it was flying through the rocks and blowing spray all over our faces. There is a good trail to walk on and it is a beautiful coastal walk.

The golden light on the gorge at sunrise was so beautiful, and there are not many people at this hour. There are several viewing vantage points but the walk down the steps and onto the beach was by far the best.

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
