  • This park is situated along the famous Great Ocean Road, where the 12 Apostles. This point of interest is too touristy. There are busloads full of Asians and because they create choke selfies they largely the stairs and road. Actually, there are only 8 of the 12 Apostles over and most likely disappear this year some in the sea. There are nicer points to the Great Ocean Road. We were fast away at the 12 Apostles.

  • Nice places to see around.. One day tour is not enough.. Lot of good places to see around, camp and stay the night with friends.. Concerned about safety and security - forget it..
  • What a great national park. They have built it up just enough to make it easy to get around but still keep the natural wonder. Great place to take the kids to enjoy the coast and take some fantastic pictures. The whole area is wonderful. The stuff are few but they are always happy to help.
  • You have to go there at least once! The great barrier reef might be dieing but this magnificent stretch of coast will be here for a long time yet and you don't have to get wet to see it's rugged beauty. Try travelling in the opposite direction from Port Campbell via Lavers Hill, you tend not to cop the huge visitor numbers coming from the Geelong direction.
  • A must-see in Melbourne, Australia is the penguin parade at dusk. It is a nature thing, not artificial, not a show. The penguins go into the sea in the morning to hunt and comes back at dusk to their homes. Amazing thing.
  • A great spot to visit with plenty of short easy walks to natural views. Try heading along in winter as there will be less tourists and earlier sunsets. The ideal time to see it is at dusk, as the sunset adds to the beauty of the Twelve Apostles
