It wouldn’t be a selfie spot list without the 12 Apostles right?! One of the most well-known highlights of the Great Ocean Road is the majestic 12 Apostles. Situated in the Port Campbell National Park, these massive limestone structures tower 45 metres above the tempestuous Southern Ocean and leave visitors awe-struck by their size and beauty.
The 12 Apostles Coast & Hinterland region is home to Port Campbell National Park and of course the famous 12 Apostles – but here nature provides a gallery of so much more! London Bridge, Loch Ard Gorge, Bay of Islands, and that’s just a start of what you can see carved by the Southern Ocean on the coast.
Deservingly known as paradise by the sea, Apollo Bay is midway along the majestic Great Ocean Road, in the shelter of Cape Otway and on the lowest slopes of the beautiful Otway ranges.
This stunning spot is located between Lorne and Wye River. Just make sure you pull over and park safely.
A picture-postcard beach is a fitting end to the effort required to reach it. Presided over by the imposing bulk of Moonlight Head the sand gives way to a tessellated green sandstone platform that may be explored in calm conditions and low tides.
