Good setup with the carpark and visitors centre to make the main Apostles area very accessible. Even though it was a pretty bleak day when we were there it still had quite a good crowd of people. Then further down the road there were several more places to pull into just a rough carpark and have a look at some... More

This is a wonderful experience, but be prepared to share with a lot of tourists like you LOL. Go there by car and if you have time spend one or two nights in one of the nearest cities. I recommend Princetown. and Apollo Bay. Don't go there thinking you are going to find a good restaurant, go eating in Port... More

Well if you like battling loads of tourists (and I mean thousands) to view some rock pillars standing up out of the sea, this is for you. Sorry, don't mean to sound disingenuous, but it just wasn't for us and we both agreed that we could just have easily have driven on past and not bothered. As a positive, the... More

If you like going outdoors, seeing nature and stuff, you will never be disappointed. This is one of the best views I've ever seen in my life, although disappearing one by one, it's still majestic and breathtaking! Worth the 5-6hr drive from Melbourne!

After hearing enough and more about the Twelve Apostles, I guess this was one landmark in Australia which did not live up to my expectations. All the hype and thousands of tourists stuffed like sardines on the cliff walk perhaps added to our experience. :(

The stop at the twelve apostles is a great way to see the rough coastline and take a break from driving, first thing you will notice is theres not twelve, as the years pas the erosion continues and they drop into the ocean. but that doesn't distract from the excellent view. Just have it as a stop on the way... More

To say this is a Park you need to see is a HUGE understatement, if your visiting Melbourne and don't take an Ocean Road tour to see this you really missed out. This is a scene you will see only here.

I found this place checking on Trip Advisor things to do while in Warrnambool and what a gem. Breathtaking views, easy access, excellent spot to refill your batteries with the beauties of this world and great spot for taking awesome photos for photograph lovers.

A must whilst on the Great Ocean Road. Just be patient though as heaps of tourists wanting to take photos. Helicopter rides also available. Natures beauty at its best.
