A colourful and lively seaside village, Port Campbell is home to restaurants and cafes with views of the beach, bakeries selling homemade goodies, and plenty of vibrant shops and galleries to explore. Sheltered by cliffs and Norfolk pines, the town has the atmosphere of a safe haven on the edge of wild nature.
Drive the short distance to the towering Twelve Apostles, the dramatic limestone stacks that have made the region famous. Take to the air in a helicopter for a bird’s-eye view or join a boat tour and marvel at their immense size. Be sure to leave time to check out some of the other coastal features in the area, including the eerie beach and maritime history of Loch Ard Gorge, the 70 metre cliffs of Gibson Steps and the serene Bay of Islands.
Local creeks and the harbour offer excellent fishing, while Two Mile Bay is revered by surfers as one of the best big-wave breaks in Australia. Join a dive tour and visit large canyons and gorges on the sea floor or head off on a boat tour taking anglers and passengers close to the stacks, caves and arches in the area.
