    A gorgeous place to walk around, see the rocks and the different layers and colours in them. The water’s multiple shades of blue are mesmerising and something that you could view for hours!  more »

    This is another of the less busy stops along the Great Ocean Road but i found i to be one of the most beautiful. The ocean is quite rough here & there is no beach to access - just waves crashing again...  more »
