These rock formations jetting out of the water were amazing to see. Even though there are only 8 large formations standing it is definitely a site to see. The ocean the sand and the cliff walls of the main land all together are awe inspiring.

When you drive past the most iconic scenic touring routes, magnificent coastal views, the farms & towns you know the end point has to be perfect. This proved to be true for me when we landed at the port Campbell national park, on a, Saturday evening in April. Only thing is on a day when tourists are more, you might... More

A really beautiful place to visit. The wow factor is amazing. It's a must see when visiting Victoria. Don't just go to the first spot. Drive down past the stop to see many more spectacular sights.

The views are incredible. It's such a beautiful work of nature. You won't regret the stop, especially around sunset! In saying that, the actual path down isn't well signed and it's difficult to figure out unless you go into the information centre. The sign says it will take 15-30 minute walk from info centre. It only took about 5 mins,... More

This is one of the most incredible Australian locations we have seen. A marvelous iconic Aussie place. It shows a lot about how our coastline is both shaped and shaved. Just standing and watching the waves crash endlessly against the base of these towers and relentlessly trying to bring them down reminds you of how powerful and beautiful nature is.... More

You can't travel to Victoria and leave without seeing these wonderful coastal structures. A magnificent view especially on a crisp winters day as the waves pound the coast.

We visited the Twelve Apostles today. Well we had wind, hail, gale force winds and freezing cold temperatures. However, with all the above this remains one of the most spectacular views that I have ever seen. The sandstone rocks that have been eroded by the ocean and time create a dramatic backdrop. If you ever travel on the Great Ocean... More
