Port Campbell National Park, Melbourne

4.8
#6 of 33 in Parks in Melbourne
A striking, craggy land of sheer cliff faces, rock-strewn shorelines, and deserted beaches, Port Campbell National Park sits alluringly on the Victorian coast, less than 200 km (124 mi) from Melbourne. Scenic drives and wind-blown trails are waiting to be traversed in this impressive yet isolated wilderness, where you’re more likely to encounter a roaming emu than a wandering human.

    I used to enjoy coming here but now it seems that every 5 minutes theres a passing helicopter and so much infrastructure you could feel like you're at a shopping centre sometimes. Understanding that s...  more »

    It is hard to describe how beautiful the rock formations are. Although it took over twelve hours to do the round trip (I highly recommend going with a private guide), it was definitely worth it.  more »

    The 12 Apostles is a must see landmark when travelling in Victoria. During our holiday (and a visit to friends in Sale, Victoria) we travelled along the Great Ocean Road and that was quite an experience. The visitor centre and kiosk are not really what you'd expect for such a famous landmark, but te views are stunning. Put on some warm clothes, because you might be blown off the rocks.

    Take the great ocean road tour and you'll stop at this amazing place. Great history here with the ship wreck. You can actually walk down to the beach too. Wear a jacket...it'll be cold with the wind tunneling.

    Wow, the scenery was great and this park was the welcome rest from the travel. Nice place to recharge and refresh during the journey. If you have some extra cash, you can even get helicopter flights from here. Even if you are only stopping to see the great ocean view here, the park itself is well done.

    Beautiful and serene. Worth visiting if you are going to visit the Twelve Apostles as well.

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
