This spot is beautiful. The local council have done a great job providing it. If you're going to visit I would leave it until the sun is setting. We got there around 17:00 and it was beautiful, but we decided to wait a few hours and check out the sunset. Thankfully we did as it was truly breathtaking. Our pictures... More

What a wonderful start to our visit of the GOR last month. A glorious morning and the first of our several stops on our way through to Melbourne. Glorious weather, Mother Nature's magnificent sculptures in beautiful morning light....couldn't have been much better!

This is a breathtakingly beautiful part of the coast, there are not enough adjectives to describe it ! Photographer's dream ! We were there in September and the weather was brilliant. It was school holidays so a few people around, but not at all too crowded. Visit this, it's worth seeing, even the teenage son was impressed

I agree with other reviewers. It is less crowded up here and every bit as beautiful. If you're doing great ocean road leave a little more time to stop up here. Very tranquil and lovely walks cliff side.

We went here while I was 32 weeks pregnant and it was Such a beautiful coastal drive to see some amazing sights. It was great. Well worth the drive. Very relaxing to just be able to sit at some of the locations and just chill out.
