Me and my friend took the V/Line coach from Warrnamboul. Here the coach stopped for 30 minutes :) It was just as I imagined it :) You have to walk a bit to get to the lookout, but it is worth it :) There is a path that you can follow, that will take you to different spots to take... More

Probably one of the top 10 scenic spot in the world. I visited by helicopter with the company 12 Apostles Helicopter. I paid for the two seats as it was low season, but did not regreat my invesment Then road back to Melbourne, is also a must to do

I`ve been away from OZ for too long, finally we`re in a car for a weekend down the Great Ocean Rd, and I couldn`t wait, I could barely sit still imagining the ocean wondering if its still so blue, and the rock formations that we know as the Twelve Apostles still towering over the raging waves. One of the most... More

Just gorgeous and amazing. So wonderful to just sit there and take it all in. The view is amazing and the photos look incredible, but cannot take in the full grandeur.

Fantastic stop on the Great Ocean Drive for scenic pictures of the cliffs, beaches, waves, etc... Also possible to do a helicopter tour which we didn't do (but regret now)...

Having travelled from Port Fairy along the Great Ocean Road all the way to Melbourne I can honestly say that The Twelve Apostles are probably the least impressive sight that you can see along the whole journey. I'm not sure why there is so much hype built around what is actually now 8 limestone stacks. If you're travelling the GOR... More

This is a definite tick box if you travel victoria ... the best way to reach is driving through great ocean road, and you can complete your journey at the day end to see this picture perfect reddish area. I was there couple of times and lucky enough that most of the time was not in driving seat. So, take... More

You feel like you're inside a giant postcard looking up and down the coastline here. These things look exactly like the photos when you get there but experiencing the size of them and the contrasts of the apostles against the waves and beach is beathtaking. Top spot to visit.

Admittedly, they are slowly disappearing but there are definitely at least two less than the last time I was here. There is a great visitor's centre which, for us, was a wonderful refuge from the fierce and icy wind. The toilets were not clean which was a big negative. Having said that, the view was fantastic and, having brought one... More

This is one of those things where you need to tough out the long drive but when you get there you will know why it was all worth it. Don't get me wrong, The Great Ocean Road is windy and takes awhile, but it has many amazing views to go with it. We rented a car which was a fun... More
