Gaze at the dramatic Twelve Apostles, undoubtedly the region’s most famous natural landmark, during a stop at Port Campbell National Park; upgrade to include an unforgettable helicopter ride over the iconic rock formations. Visit Loch Ard Gorge, the site of a notorious 19th-century shipwreck, and marvel at the dramatic result of erosion at Gibson’s Steps.
