National Park Nature / Park
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.

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.

  • 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.
  • Spectacular! I was speechless. Crowded but totally worth it! If is winter, get yourself a very good coat! The wind is very strong.
  • Such a beauty. So much to do and see! Stunning and relaxing place
  • The park is excellently facilitates with some of the main sights being wheelchair accessible. The drive along the great ocean road is brilliant and taking the time to stop at each point is a must.
  • Absolutely incredible. The views are amazing. Not as busy as the apostles. But can be busy.
