Port Campbell is a popular tourist destination primarily because it is so closely surrounded by some of the Great Ocean Road's most famous and scenic coastal attractions.
A few minutes drive away is the rocky (but broken) platform of London Bridge, the Loch Ard Gorge, Gibsons Steps, and the most celebrated of all Great Ocean Road attractions, the Twelve Apostles. Originally named "The Sow & Piglets", the Twelve Apostles are a series of off-shore limestone stacks. Wind and sea erosion continually batters them, with some having collapsed over the years, leaving 8 standing now.
A colourful and lively seaside village on the lands of the Eastern Maar People, 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. Finish the day with a walk out to the Port Campbell Jetty and watch the waves crashing against the limestone cliffs.
