Coastal attractions around the 12 Apostles
Take in spectacular coastal attractions along the Great Ocean Road between Princetown and Allansford, within an easy drive of the 12 Apostles.
Take 86 steps down to the beach below to be dwarfed by the 70-metre high vertical cliffline. Walk along the beach to the enormous offshore rock stacks – Gog and MaGog.

Step down to this geological formation created when sinkholes in the limestone cliffs met with a receding cliff line. Feel the eeriness of the still, clear water of the Grotto in contrast to the ocean.
9 kilometres west of Port Campbell
See this natural rock formation formed through erosion, at its best during rough seas when the waves crash in and around the arch. Take in an excellent view back towards the 12 Apostles.
6 kilometres west of Port Campbell
Witness London Bridge, originally a natural archway and tunnel in an offshore rock formation, however, it collapsed in 1990 and became a bridge without a middle.
7 kilometres west of Port Campbell
Loch Ard Gorge
Stand on top of the cliff and you'll be amazed at the sheer size of the cliffs and the narrow opening out to sea at the Loch Ard Gorge. In rough weather the crashing waves put on quite a show.
8 kilometres east of Port Campbell
Bay of Martyrs
Use the Bay of Martyrs as an ideal place to see the stunning rock stacks of the Bay of Islands nearby. They are particularly beautiful at sunset when the islands and Massacre Point are backlit by the sun.
