This picturesque site has a good walk to get from the top to the bottom, all points are great for capturing your memories. We were lucky the weather was good, it made for a every enjoyable stop.

If there are low clouds, you will definitely feel like up in cloud 9. The place is cooling and relaxing

Even though photos of Loch Ard Gorge is exactly what you will see there, it is still amazing to witness it with your eyes. Definitely a photo spot. Just bear in mind of flights of steps leading down to the gorge, and then taking time...More

A fantastic place to meet the greatness of the ocean and the resistance of the rock. On every step you feel natures power. I even managed to meet the echidna animal, who, as it turned out, lives there not far.

The gorge is great but at the same turnoff is Thunder Cave. Make sure to take the shirt drive and 500 meter walk to see it.

Well worth the walk around the various viewing points to take lots of photos. You can walk down the steps to the beach which would be great in the summer. Good storyboard to read about the Loch Ard.

Such a gorgeous spot to visit in Victoria. It gets very busy so I recommend staying close to the park (at the camping ground or at Lorne or apollo bay) and getting up early in the morning to go. The tourist buses arrive there around...More

Each trail gives you a completely different experience. You can easily spend 15 min or 3+ hours at this stop!

It is a short walk to the clifftop edge of the gorge. One can see ocean waves crashing into rocks, but not the ship that sank here many years ago.

Yes it is possible, but watch your step as the stairs can get Sandy and slippery. Also do not turn your back on the water as some rogue waves can come up quickly!

I think it would be possible but not easy. As expressed, the views from the top are great. But it is definitely worth it to walk to the bottom as well. You can make that decision when you get to the top view and see how... More
