Magnificent
Mar. 2021 • Couples
Visited Loch Ard Gorge with my partner and was glad it was a quiet day and not too busy. This is a delight to visit and worth taking time just to sit on the beach and enjoy the delightful natural setting.
Steps and paths are well maintained.
Most enjoyable experience

If you are into history then this is a place you have to visit. if for no other reason than to understand the severity of the coastline.

Worth a visit

All the places along this coast are well worth a visit. We did a helicopter trip and the details and history you find out is really good.

Great, but does its popularity have an impact?
Jan. 2021
The place itself is amazing - the power of the water and the height of the surrounding cliffs. I remember this place as being fairly deserted, having not visited for around 30 years. On this visit there were so many people around that it was hard to appreciate it for what it was. Great that so many people are enjoying the experience, but somehow takes away from it.

The best by far among all the natural wonders in great ocean road. Less crowd so more peaceful to go by the water and appreciate the beautiful scenery.

A great stop on the Great Ocean Road
Dec. 2020 • Family
We stopped here straight after twelve apostles - about 5 minutes up the road. We did a short walk on the Geology Walk and saw the Razorback rock which was amazing! This is an easy walk to do with kids.

Your next stop after the twelve apostles!
Sep. 2020 • Family
Don’t miss stopping in here after the twelve apostles. You get to enjoy some time at beach level, looking up at the cliffs and running away from the giant swells. They get pretty big here and land on the beach suddenly, so keep your eyes peeled or be prepared to get wet! As an extra treat, there’s a small cave with stalactites. The sounds of dripping water are haunting.

Caves with barnacles

Behind the beauty of Loch Ard Gorge hides a dark and tragic story of shipwreck, heroism, and survival... I doubt if Tom and Eva the survivors of the shipwreck stopped to reflect on how beautiful the location was. But visitors such as us can most certainly appreciate it.

I guess because we don't have to climb in and out of the gorge without assistance helps us to be kinder in our appraisal. These days there are some very steep stairs to utilise to make your way down to explore. And it's worth exploring... I don't consider myself fit...but I didn't even hesitate to descend. I may have hesitated half way though *laughs* ... my fear of heights is legendary. But still... I felt it wrong to have come so far and not explore and see where the story unfolded.

When you explore the coast and then walk down to the gorge you realise how lucky the survivors were to have been stranded in that location as there are caverns here that would have afforded them some shelter.

And even if you aren't interested in the historical events that took place here , or how the gorge got it's name... you have to appreciate the raw beauty of this place.
