Good place for photo, it near by The twelve Apostles, not recommended for old people , because a lot of steps to go are not easy for them , the view are good and can take nice photos.

That's probably the best part about the GOR. While the views, yes, are absolutely stunning! The history is also really something to take in. It seems crazy to think that a mere 150/200 years ago transport was so basic and dangerous!!

A beautiful sight that is a must when doing the Great Ocean Road. There is an amazing beach nearby if you have more time. Beware of bug season though.

If you've made the effort to get to the Great Ocean Road then do all of it! Although the coast is scattered with limestone formations, each and every bay and coastline formation is amazing. Every turn is a new photo opportunity and the colours of...More

Yes it is possible, but watch your step as the stairs can get Sandy and slippery. Also do not turn your back on the water as some rogue waves can come up quickly!

I think it would be possible but not easy. As expressed, the views from the top are great. But it is definitely worth it to walk to the bottom as well. You can make that decision when you get to the top view and see how... More
