The Bay of Islands is possibly the most underrated attraction on the GOR, the remaining Apostles attract most attention, but the bay is full of islets and pillars. So don't miss this just because you saw the Apostles.

Natural beauty at its best, these offer a breath taking view. The clear blue sky and clear weather with perfect weather in january made our trip rememberable.

Traveling from Warrnambool this was my first view of the Great Ocean Road. From the road it doesn't look like much, but follow the sign to the carpark and take the short walk to the lookouts. It's impressive! When I visited it was sunny with only a slight breeze so the sea was calm and the view was amazing. I... More

I believe this particular spot is even more impressive than the 12 Apostles. The bay is filled with amazingly beautifully sandstone structures that have been carved by the wind over many years. Make sure you continue along the Great Ocean Road until you reach this picturesque destination

Took the kids down to Warrnambool and loved every minute. Great town, great vibe and beautiful scenery!! Did the cliff walk from Thunder Point back towards the breakwater. Its an easy walk (you can even take a pram) and the kids loved it. We even spided some Pengiuns over on Middle island!

We almost drove past this gem, given we were so over sightseeing and getting out of the car with our cameras every 5 mins. But if you are going to save something, save this rock stack formation. Even better if the weather is rough and windy. Probably not so good if it is raining at thee same time.

This was our first view of the Great Ocean Road coast as we were driving from Adelaide to Melbourne. The sun was shinning and the view was awesome. What a start for our coastal drive. Do not miss this look out.
