This was our 1st stop on the drive along the great ocean rd. A beautiful vista of rock formations and cliffs that we just stared for some time. The day was sunny & windy but cool in January with the sea just a little choppy. We had other sights to see so we dragged ourselves away.

The Bay of Islands was our first stop on the Great Ocean Road. We did our trip in Kombis and are from the Darling Downs in Qld. So for us this is one of the most memorable lookouts throughout our whole trip. This was our we made it! With a quick stroll up the well maintained path, we were at... More

The walk is easy and the views spectacular - you can scramle over the rocks, of walk along the beach - both are fun and interesting

Beautiful scenery with easy walking access along the paths and sufficient parking. Well worth the stop to take some stunning photos.

A real gem is this! So stunning that seeing it from the ground does not do it justice. Highly recommend forking out for a helicopter ride over the Bay of Martyrs and this area, just superb!!!

We enjoyed this lesser known part of the Great Ocean Road. Wild coast, and spectacular rock formations.

This place is awesome!!! And I think it might even be better than the 12 apostles as there are fewer people and a lot more rocks to see. It's definitely worth the drive to visit! Also if you stop at the Bay of Martyrs you can take stairs that lead you down to the beach which is absolutely amazing!!!

Each of the parks and viewings along the Great Ocean Road has their own unique beauty and attraction. The views of the water and the beauty of the rock formations is great. Took lots of photos and left grateful for visiting this natural wonder.

There are a number of wonderful sights along this coastline the more well known 12 Apostles is only one! One of the things we enjoyed about this site and a number of the others including Bay of Marvels,The Arch, London Bridge and the Grotto was that there were much smaller numbers of people at these sites so you didn't feel...
