WHILE AWAY THE HOURS AT THIS COLOURFUL SEASIDE VILLAGE
PORT CAMPBELL IS JUST AWESOME
This colourful seaside village, Port Campbell is a place to slow down - and take in everything that epitomises the Great Ocean Road. From boutique accommodation and great regional food, here you can explore local history, wander the beaches and visit the Twelve Apostles and other famous landmarks of the Road.
PORT CAMPBELL NATIONAL PARK
One of the most well-known highlights of the Great Ocean Road is The Twelve Apostles. Situated in the Port Campbell National Park, the massive limestone structures that tower 45 metres above the tempestuous Southern Ocean, leave its visitors awe-struck in wonder at their size and beauty. Behind the eight remaining stacks (five have fallen since their discovery) are majestic cliffs, around 70 metres high.
The Port Campbell National Park ranges from Princetown to Peterborough. Photographs of these historic sites have long represented the Great Ocean Road. These include the Loch Ard Gorge, London Bridge, The Arch and the Grotto, to name a few. Take your time exploring these coastal lookouts and trails and learning their amazing historical stories.
PORT CAMPBELL JETTY
An attraction in it's own right is the Port Campbell Jetty. You can't visit Port Campbell without taking the time to stand on this jetty - it is a must do.
Moving away from the rugged coastline and heading on inland you will discover the Kanawinka Geotrail - a trail encompassing the volcanic lakes and craters of the region. The Port Campbell Visitor Information Centre has maps and additional information on the volcanic lakes and crater trails including some fabulous FREE family fun to be had.
If walking is your choice of travel be sure to discover the Great Ocean Walk - it's a backstage pass of the Great Ocean Road and traverses some of the most scenic natural elements of the region.
