Travelling from Vic to WA and had to do the Great Ocean Road and see the Apostles. There once was 12. There is plenty of parking and easy access from the carpark under the road to the viewing platforms. There were plenty of people there and coaches. If you are towing, don't worry, there are areas to park. You can... More

Absolutely amazing is the only way to describe this place. After driving the Great Ocean Road we opted for a helicopter tour of the Apostles ..... Simply breathtaking!! The charter company were so professional, extremely knowledgeable and it's the most amazing way to see this "wonder of Australia". Reasonably priced and we didn't need to book, just turned up and...

I have been here many times and the experience of walking the board walk along this magnificent part of the Victorian coastline is always new, always exciting and always spellbinding. I refer to it as an experience because it is not just a view - being there is to be part of it. The atmosphere engulfs you and your are... More

As the others reviewers have stated, this place is amazing. You can't go wrong and it is a must do! I can't say anything which hasn't already been said. However... Here's a tip: if your desire is to see the apostles at sunset, ensure that your gasoline is topped off at the last gas station you see. Many stations close... More

The place is beautiful and the walking tracks are easy to walk for small children. However, the number of people in there makes it very difficult to get a nice photo and appreciate the place. Some tourists are very rude and just get in the middle of you and the person taking your picture without even apologizing. Selfie stick land!... More

Nice short walk to look at these great rock formations in the sea. The path is suitable for pushers and wheelchairs. From the viewing platform you can see different views of the Apostles. It was amazing, people everywhere and it was 4pm. Helicopters whizzing overhead. Rug up because it can be very windy and cold. There are toilets back near... More

Twelve Apostles is a MUST GO place when you are cruising along the Great Ocean Road if you are in Victoria. There were an helicopter ride, but i didn't opt that. it's quite expensive as the whole Australia in general. The Great Ocean Road is more or less like the Ionian road in south Albania but it misses a lot... More

This place is seriously is one of the most beautiful places on earth! It's a rather long drive if you are traveling to the twelve apostles from Melbourne, i would recommend you to visit this place as part of a road trip to Adelaide on the great ocean road. However, this place just takes your breath away and it's free!!!

Twelve Apostles was a priority for us to visit during our Great Ocean Road trip and when we actually viewed it for the first time it exceeded our highest expectations. We were fortunate to view this magical scene just before sunset when it was shrouded in low mist and cloud and this only added to the aura and grandeur of... More

What a wonderful place to take international visitors. Plenty to see and some amazing vistas for perfect photos. Lots of tracks for all ages and abilities too. The only disappointment was that there was nowhere to sit to have a nice picnic. Having these facilities in the various car parks would be greatly appreciated for hungry travellers not wanting to...
