Rugged cliffs
Sep 2020
Like the rest of this stretch of coastline it is both beautiful and dangerous. Swimming is not advised but I think you’d be pretty safe to paddle. The waves can come right up the base of the steps so be careful of being cut off. Gorgeous colour to the cliffs - they have a real orange hue that contrasts beautifully with the water. There is access to three bays from this car park area each with beautiful views and a few stone stacks but Childer’s was my favourite.

One of the prettiest scenic places we have seen on our tour around State

A great day trip from Terang to have morning tea, but stayed a lot longer to have lunch
A little windy but rugged up and well worth the trip. Will definitely be going back again, when we get out of the Covid Lock down

One of my favourites

Located in a hidden corner and not on the actual Great Ocean Road this amazing spot is often overlooked by tourists. Shame because it’s one of the best spots on the coast. Easy walk down the stairs to an amazing beach with huge rocky features surrounding it

Most beautiful in the morning

With the sun rays from the east, you get the best pictures in the morning at this secluded cove. No tourists, just you & the beach.
Actually, there are 2 coves within walking distance...pick your favorite!

A little off the beaten track and you need to watch the waves and tides because it isn't patrolled but it is a beautiful beach that doesn't get crowded. Well worth the extra drive.

Stunning cove of the beaten track!
Jan 2018 • Family
Turn off easily visible on the Great Ocean Road but then need to take the service road not as well signed. Lots of sticky flies so keep your mouth closed! Beautiful cove with strong current. Felt like we were in Hanauma Bay in Hawaii just with a rougher surf. Great secluded beach with a number of steps to get down to beach level.

Childers Cove perfect location away from the crowds!
Jan 2018 • Family
This place is the perfect location for travellers who want to get away from the crowds along the ocean road! We were in the Cove with 2 other families! That’s it! Beautiful location - there are steps so prams aren’t appropriate!

After running the gauntlet with busloads of tourists at the popular stops along the great ocean road it was great to get some time out here, and practically have the spot to ourselves. The walk down to the beach was not too hard, and well worth it. There is toilet at this spot but best to avoid it if you can.

A bit remote from the other features.

This site is a bit away from the Port Campbell and Peterborough sections, but has its own impressive vista for those interested.

Worth the detour
Feb 2017 • Couples
The cove is a little off the great ocean road but is very much worth the detour,I drove down the road and stopped at the second tiny little car park and followed the track to the beach,there is a steep sand dune to go down to get onto the beach but it is worth it you will probably have the place to yourself as I did.Great views and lovely beach.It is hard work going back up the sand dune to get back to the car though as the slope is about 30 Mtrs high.Highly recommend a visit here.
