Don't let crowds put you off - this is a breathtaking sight, particularly at sunset

Sure, it's crowded but if you go early or late in the day they aren't quite as bad, and no matter... read more

The Great Ocean Rd is worth the drive just for the regular scenery ... but made more fantastic for the Apostles. There is parking for 250 cars across the road and a safe underpass for viewing the Apostles themselves. We got there on a weekday...More

I visited this shop with my husband and a friend from France. Were were looking at some candle holders which were designed in Germany. I looked at the packaging to see where they were actually made. The owner/staff overheard me saying to my husband that...More

This is worth doing as it's one of the must-sees in this part of the Great Ocean Road. There is a large car park with a very tacky little gift/coffee shop and you walk across to a good viewing point. We were here off-season and...More

There are not many left but what there is left is still amazing to have a look at. If you have a chance to see them then its worth it

Great view, extremely crowded on Boxing Day but as we travelled down GOR, this place started to feel like it's a tad over-rated. I got much better view further down GOR with far less people.

A stunning drive but also dangerous. Many tourists just stop to take photos of the ocean, scenery and often Koalas in gumtrees!!

This is a great little gem of a gift shop to buy some very original and reasonably priced gifts. Give them a visit when you are in Apollo Bay next time.

Just a wonderful experience of Australian natural wonder. We did the full great ocean road experience with the 12 Apostles as the the major attraction. It did not disappoint! We had great fine weather that highlighted the escarpment. The lookout points are now well setup...More

We were so fortunate to visit on a clear, sunny weekday, when the views went on forever, and the tourist load wasn't unbearable. If you really want to enjoy the views, be prepared to walk a bit along the coastline to the various overlooks. It...More
