as part of a hiking trip along the Great Ocean walk arranged for us by Ausalks we stayed at the Portside Motel. Our hosts were Josie and John McInerney. John is the former Chief Ranger at the 12 Apostles Visitors Center. He took us on a tour of the Loch Ard Gorge, a spectacular area. John was a wonderful guide, knowledgeable, clear and entertaining. As a former chief ranger he was one of the planners of the Great Ocean Walk which runs from Apollo Bay to the 12 Apostles Visitors center. If you get to Port Campbell a guided tour by John is mandatory. The Portside Motel is very comfortable, an easy stroll into the center of town.
