We went there after a long drive from Sydney, crossing Melbourne, pass through winding roads! Fabulous trip, worth seeing the views!

We spent the night in Warrnambool and this was our first stop while making our way to 12 Apostles in reverse (most people would start at 12 Apostles and make this their last stop). We got lost initially - no thanks to Google Maps. However am glad we persevered and found the right Bay of Islands. It was worth the... More

The bay of island are one of the last of the many stacks along the Great Ocean Road heading south but we think they are still one of the most spectacular. Very easily reached from Warrnambool if you don't want to drive the whole of the Great Ocean Road.

I have taken the Great Ocean Drive twice and would gladly do it again. Rent a car and take your time. I typically put up a night in Apollo Bay and take detours along the way.

Surprised by the Bay of Islands, maybe it was the time of day (later in the afternoon), the sun was shining on the cliffs and everything was very bright, the view of these islands was spectacular, every bit as good as the 12 apostles.

Beautiful views... Did a roadtrip with a friend and we didnt have a driver license so we took the V-Line from Apollo Bay to Warrnambool. Worthy all those curves in the highway ;) By the way, I visited the Great Ocean Road on June-July 2012... TripAdvisor would not let me choose that date

Starting the Great Ocean Rd at Warrnambool is, in my opinion, the best way to do the Great Ocean Rd. Bay of Islands is the first stop. Beautiful scenery. Great photo opportunities.

This was our first trip down the Great Ocean Road and we loved it all although the weather was against us. We enjoyed this stop and have some nice photos. I agree with other reviews regarding the crowds at the Apostles, this stop was very peaceful in comparison.
