This area is located west of Peterborough and is often given a miss by tourists. That's a great advantage because you can enjoy the beauty while feeling that you have it all to yourself.

We were there on a lovely, warm, almost cloudless day so we were able to take time to appreciate the forces of the wind and water that continue to carve out this extraordinary coastline. From this spot you can see how the elements are slowly carving inlets deep into the coast - probably eventually swallowing up the current road.

So, do stop and enjoy this stunning environment! The path from the car park is short, paved and wheel chair friendly

This was more spectacular than the 12 Apostles!
Would highly recommend calling in.
Plenty of parking, not too far to walk.

This is not to be missed, it is so pretty. It can be easy to miss out some of the attractions that are on the Great Ocean Road, but this is one not to be missed.

My wife and I started our day's drive along the Great Ocean Road here at the Bay of Islands.

The scenery was fabulous and gave us a foretaste of the other natural wonders we were to see that day.

If you have the opportunity - don't miss it!
