Where’s your favourite lookout in the Port Campbell National Park? 

Loch Ard Gorge has to be in the top three?  Local Tip: See it from the sky with @12apostleshelicopters 🚁

Reminiscing about our Great Weekend in Portland. 

Wander the beautifully maintained historic streets, dine at the many harbourside pubs and restaurants, visit the nearby 2000 local resident Australian and Fur seals and discover deserted beaches in Portland.

Who can name these falls? 
We will give you a clue… 
You start the walk to these falls at the Sheoak Picnic area.

Anglesea is a year-round playground for the adventurous and curious. With a seemingly endless supply of spectacular beaches, adventure activities and nature experiences, you’ll have to schedule carefully to leave enough time to sample the local produce. @exploresurfcoast @angleseaadventure

Now is the perfect time to get fit and plan your Great Ocean Walk. 

Rehash - Great Weekend #11 ~ THE GREAT OCEAN WALK 🥾 

Starting at Apollo Bay and finishing with a hikers-only view of the Twelve Apostles, the full 8-day Great Ocean Walk is over 90 kilometres long. But walkers of nearly any ability can make their own once-in-a-lifetime adventure – tackling shorter ½ day walks, day walks, overnight walks or multi-day trips. @micro_adventurist
