About
The wild Southern Ocean has carved the Port Campbell National Park coastline into formations that are famous the world over - and earned it the nickname of the Shipwreck Coast. Drive the Great Ocean Road and see London Bridge, The Grotto, Loch Ard Gorge and the unmissable Twelve Apostles. The best way to see Port Campbell National Park is to take the Great Ocean Road. This is one of the world's most celebrated scenic drives – and its undoubted highlight is the Twelve Apostles, which tower 45 metres above the Southern Ocean. On a coastline renowned for its spectacular coastal formations it’s easy to overlook London Bridge and The Grotto, which are both as awesome in their own way as the more famous Twelve Apostles.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

These choppers flying this low is very dangerous. Surprised aviation authorities allow this. Park pathways needs repaving.

The Great Ocean Road has many things to see, but Port Campbell National Park takes in most of the highlights. The best-known attractions are the Twelve Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge, but there are many other things worth seeing. Apart from the stone formations, wildlife abounds, especially birdlife.

Port Campbell National Park is definitely the highlight of the Great Ocean Road, there is so much to see! Definitely worth spending a few days to check out all the sights, and stop and see everything, there is so much more than just the Apostles!

Port Campbell National Park contains some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Australia. It is also home to some very interesting flora and fauna. Sheer cliffs, coves, caves, a variety of birds, and some very unusual plants are here to be found. There are also some historically and pre-historically important sites.

I've reviewed each of the places I visited separately. My favourites were Gibson's Steps, the 12 Apostles, Loch Ard Gorge (which, in itself, contains a number of different attractions), and The Grotto.

A trip along the Great Ocean Road must include a trip up to Port Campbell and the ocean views in that area. Amazing rock formations, historical monuments such as found in Lock Ard, , wonderful cliff top walks and wonderful hidden beaches.

Spectacular coastline with plenty of scenic outlooks, cliffs and rock formations some of which are accessible just a short walk from the road. The unstable cliffs probably suggest it would be best to stick with the tourist walkways though. The shipwreck history of the area is well documented.

The Port Campbell National Park is around 100 km south-west of Melbourne. The best way to get there is along the Great Ocean Road. There are many things to see. London Bridge did fall down, but other wonders such as the Twelve Apostles remain. It's known as the Shipwreck Coast; the Loch Ard Gorge was the site of a shipwreck in the Age of Sail. It's hard to believe anyone could survive, but they did.

There is a lot to see in the Port Campbell National Park in addition to the Apostles which are not the best place in the park. Lock Ard Gorge is great and there atre many places to walk to see the spectacular coast line

Port Campbell National Park has such a huge display of natural coastal formations that just must not be missed. Put it on the 'bucket list'. After having travelled the world in every continent, the coastal drive along the Great Ocean Road is one of the best anyone could do. Plan to take it very slowly - do not be rushed - and take in great photo opportunities at every stop.

We spent the night at Warrnambool and traveled east through the Port Campbell National Park to stopover at night in Apollo Bay. The day's drive was 170 kms, which was just right to not make it a rushed day and give plenty of time to see ALL the attractions of Port Campbell National Park. A must do in Australia and the world.
