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. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Port Campbell holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Port Campbell National Park and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • This a fairly-weather dependent attraction - in bad weather it will be hard to see effectively, though it may well be less crowded out of season. The scenery is spectacular all along the coast, and th...  more »
  • By the Great ocean road, we were up to the 12 Apostles beach all the way down by taking the stairs in wood. To stop at the small parking lot for a dozen cars, not big or there are plenty of buses and tourist selfies mode. Images with breathtaking

  • 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
