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.

That day we were driving along the GOR. Our first stop was the Bay of Islands. It a bit after 8am and the vista platforms pretty much empty. That gave us lots of space and time to enjoy the views and to take nice pics. To fully enjoy it you should really take your time and not just rush and... More

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.
