We weren't too sure on what to visit on Great Ocean Road, but this was pretty speccy :) The history of the doomed Loch Ard was interesting and the scenery nothing short of spectacular. Relatively easy access too!

A "must go" along the great ocean road. Take your time and enjoy fantastic scenery. Visit this place if possible at sunrise or sunset.

One of many nice stops along the great ocean road and this was one of our favorites. Another impressive show by nature which carved this impressive cliff formation over thousands of years.

Yes it is possible, but watch your step as the stairs can get Sandy and slippery. Also do not turn your back on the water as some rogue waves can come up quickly!

I think it would be possible but not easy. As expressed, the views from the top are great. But it is definitely worth it to walk to the bottom as well. You can make that decision when you get to the top view and see how... More
