For anyone travelling along the Great Ocean Road this is a must stop. It is not as well known as a lot of other stops along the coast- can’t recommend it enough. Awesome views.

This place is great to stop for a few minutes, get some frsh air and enjoy the stunningly beautiful scenery. Try taking a video panning from side of the vista to the other - comes out really good.

One of my favorite stops on GOR. Two view points and a lot to take in. We were here on a rainy day and it was still amazing. Checkout the birds on the islands.

I would pack a Rain Coat as early September , there is the usual spring rain, and it may be windy and chilly so a warm jacket would be needed
