Port Campbell National Park is about a 30km stretch along the coast of the Great Ocean Road where every part of it will take the breath out of your lungs as you witness what the monstrous Southern Ocean has created over the last 20 million years.
The national park is part of the Shipwreck Coast and this section of it is mostly made up of huge cliffs that get pounded against by the ocean, eroding the stone to create huge, rugged formations. Anywhere that you can get out of the car or tour bus will provide a view of some of the most wild coastline in the country showcasing incredible natural Limestone formation and the sight of dozens of ship wrecks during the Australian Gold Rush that began in the 1850’s.
It’s best to spend a few a days here and see as much as you can of this unique coastline. There are loads of accommodation options within the national park. Each day, drive to one or many of the attractions and then explore by foot. However, if you are just passing through and your time is limited, then make sure you stop in at the 12 Apostles and Loch Ard Gorge, which are both just a few kilometers apart and the main attractions of the area.
