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. Finish the day with a walk out to the Port Campbell Jetty and watch the waves crashing against the limestone cliffs.
Drive the short distance to the towering 12 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. Discover the eerie beach at Loch Ard Gorge, walk down the 70-metre cliff face via the Gibson Steps, and look out over the serene Bay of Islands. And bring your camera to capture the unique rock formations at London Bridge, The Arch and The Grotto.
Under and over
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.
Make your way north of the coast on the Kanawinka Geotrail and explore the lush green farmland peppered with volcanic lakes and craters.
Something for the foodies
Sip, sample and savour the region's bounty along the 12 Apostles Gourmet Trail. Take an afternoon cruise and pick up a basket of regional cheeses, wines, chocolates, ice-cream and fresh berries. Round out the tour with a sip of whiskey or sweet liqueur from Timboon's finest.
