WHILE AWAY THE HOURS AT THIS COLOURFUL SEASIDE VILLAGE
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 IS JUST AWESOME!

PORT CAMPBELL JETTY
An attraction in its 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.
