Don't miss it! All the little stops along the Great Ocean Rd help contextualise The Apostles. It also gives you a break from the hoardes of tourists at The Apostles with the same kind of natural beauty.

Less crowd than the 12 apostles but the view is still as good and even better than the 12 apostles. The view is just breathtaking

Just a little further down the Great Ocean Road, towards Warrnambool. If you are travelling this way, worthwhile viewing this part of the coastline too.

Worth going that little bit further ... Away from the crowds . Just travel up a little further past the 12 Apostles and see this beautiful part of the coast... Then stay the night in Warrnambool

Easy to get to the viewing point. Looking at the magnificent views makes you feel somewhat insignificant.

The Bay of Islands Coastal Park is a 32 kilometre long coastal reserve located between Peterborough and Warrnambool. Lookout areas with parking are provided at the Bay of Martyrs, the Bay of Islands, Three Mile Beach and Childers Cove. This spectacular coastline scenery is very similar to that around the 12 apostles but nowhere near as busy. A must visit.
