Great to visit. There are many lookouts, a carpark, information centre, kiosk and toilets. Great viewing around sunset.

There may not be twelve of them anymore but the ones remaining are just as majestic a sight you will see in South Western Victoria. A great day out from Geelong driving down the Great Ocean Rd and ending up at one of the most amazing natural attractions Australia has to offer.

Wow. Had seen so many photographs but seeing it in person was a different experience. I would suggest staying over at Port Campbell near by and visiting them twice. The view could be totally different depending on the time of the day and weather conditions. It could get extremely windy and cold rather quickly so go prepared. Loved it :)

We visited on a long weekend and it was tourist central - too busy for us. We enjoyed Lock Ard Gorge much more.

This was our 2nd trip to the 12 (or should i say 7?) Apostles. Our first visit was in the middle of Victorian winter and we experienced freezing wind and rain. This trip was now in summer and beautiful warmth. The view is amazing. There are so many good photo spots along the boardwalk. Don't just stop at the first... More

I'm not sure how many apostles are left, however they are spectacular. the visitors centre has all you need , lots of memento's and snack food as well as clean toilets. access to the viewing areas is real good and the Port Campbell is a lovely little hamlet to visit on the western side.

Not quite as spectacular as we expected plus the road was rougher and windier than expected. We drove from Apollo Bay and even then we felt it was a long drive for what you saw. The coast was lovely but there are many lovely coastlines around Australia. Yes the 12 Apostles are unique but don't be surprised if you're a... More

It is difficult to express in words the magnificence and beauty of this small section of all the Great Ocean Road has to offer. Standing high on one of the clifftop vantage points, looking to left and right, the views are simply amazing. Just go there and see for yourself!

These are quite the sight and access through the visitor centre is excellent. A nice wide walkway all the way down and out to the apostles keeps everyone moving and ensures you have plenty of opportunity for photographs. We were there on a day with a bit of wind and high cloud. It made for some majestic, moody photographs. There... More
