There is so much to see and do here in Port Campbell and surrounds. Come and enjoy all this fantastic region has to offer including the 12 Apostles, London Bridge, Bay of Islands & the Penguin colony. We have some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Australia, and a day spent exploring this beautiful coastline, all of which is within 20 minutes of our location, is sure to impress.
The Twelve Apostles is a collection of limestone stacks off the shore of the Port Campbell National Park, by the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. Their proximity to one another has made the site a popular tourist attraction. Currently there are eight apostles left, the ninth one of the stacks collapsed dramatically in July 2005. The name remains significant and spectacular especially in the Australian tourism industry.
Originally a natural archway and tunnel in an impressive offshore rock formation, London Bridge collapsed in 1990 and became a bridge without a middle. Before the collapse, visitors to the site were able to walk across ‘the eastern bridge’ that stretched across to the mainland.
The Gibson Steps are an area of cliffs only a shot drive from Port Campbell. The cliffs are the first sightseeing stop off in Port Campbell National Park for travellers heading West along the Great Ocean Road, located about 2 minutes drive from The Twelve Apostles. The name Gibson Steps refers to the 86 steps that were carved into the face of the cliff by local settler Hugh Gibson.
Choose from two different viewing areas and get that perfect picture of the sun setting over the vast Southern Ocean and the towering limestone stacks of the Bay of Islands. The light limestone found here along the coast near Peterborough reflects a different quality of light, therefore offering great photo opportunities in cloudy conditions.
