The area around the Twelve Apostles is beautifully maintained and accessible. With such fantastic views, don't be surprised if you find yourself dodging selfies. I would recommend asking a fellow tourist to take your picture with your entire group in it, as the scenery will make even the clumsiest smile seem breathtakingly adventurous.

Well, it certainly is a place that one should visit if one has never been here before, but the fourth time, well, it just becomes a little dull. Mind you, the reason I came here four times (other than the fact that I live in Australia) is because I wanted to take my friends to see them, and I must... More

Beautiful drive to see a beautiful sight! You park across the street where there are bathrooms, then walk under the road and over to the look outs. It's a lovely sight and well worth the drive!

This is my second trip to the Twelve Apostles and I don't think you could ever get sick of looking at them. No matter the time of day, time of year or the weather they always look spectacular. There is plenty of parking at the Twelve Apostles visitor centre, just a short walk on a formed path to the twelve... More

Drove down from Canberra to see the Great Ocean Road and the 12 Apostles. It did not disappoint! It is a must see for anyone living in or visiting Australia!

Driving along The Great Ocean Road is worth the trip. The 12 Apostles is a must see. We were very impressed by these rock formations and the ocean. We were also fortunate that the sky was clear and blue.

Rock stack formation here is extraordinary and stunning. I visited twelve apostles and great ocean road in March'2015 and I was so impressed, so re-visited in April'2015. Sunset is simply breathtaking. Must walk down to beach at Gibson steps and experience the big waves and sheer size of the rock stack. Some pics are here from my both trips, its... More

Came from Melbourne - worth the 3hrs+ drive. Take great ocean road down to 12 apostles then take the inner roads back to the city. Great ocean road was an amazing, scenic road trip. Mad a lot of stops along the way to take pics. We lucked up w good weather made the drive quite easy but it would definitely... More
