Port Campbell National Park is world famous for its extraordinary collection of wave-sculpted rock formations and the Twelve Apostles. Loch Ard Gorge, site of the 19th century shipwreck 'Loch Ard', as well as the Island Archway and London Bridge are other highlights. The Island Archway collapsed in 2009, highlighting the fragile and ever-changing nature of Victoria's coastline. Start your visit by heading to the Twelve Apostles Kiosk and Carpark before taking the walk to view the amazing Twelve Apostles coastline. The site offers kiosk, information, shelter and toilets. Walk the short distance (500m) through a tunnel under the Great Ocean Road to various lookouts offering expansive, breathtaking views. From the Twelve Apostles carpark there is also an easy 2.2km return walk to Gibson Steps Lookout. The lookout is above the beach with excellent views East and West. Port Campbell National Park lies between Princetown and Peterborough, 285 km west of Melbourne via the Great Ocean Road (4-5 hours drive), and 240 km from Melbourne via Colac.

It's a long way from Melbourne, but the Great Ocean Road leads to Port Campbell National Park where the remains of the Twelve Apostles hang out along the coastline. It's a beautiful place -- windy, but well worth the drive -- especially if you consider...More

It is quite crowded during the day. The best time to see the place is around sunset, very beautiful.

The twelve apostles can be easily seen by anyone. They are close to the cliffs edge and quite large.

I did see a few buses along the route, but felt like they were big tour buses. As for accommodation, we rented a house for 3 days. There are some smaller hotels around. Not sure on nightly minimums

A hire car if travelling from the airport, or maybe a bus tour. If driving, remember that the roads can be difficult and tiring. Accidents are common.
