Taking the Gibsons steps down to the beach gives you a great view of the ocean. There are a few photo spots around Gibsons steps and wherever your camera points, the photo will turn out great. But not as great as what your eyes witnessed.

Gibson Steps, the beachside is one of a very few places which you could actually walk at a beach that is reachable along the Great Ocean Road. It’s a great place for sunrise and sunset too, though I went on a rainy day. Be careful...More

We decided that the many steps down to the beach was worth the effort, as very few people wanted to make the extra effort, but the cliffs are magnificent.

Fantastic views of this lovely stretch of coastline. The way we did each stop just got more impressive.

We were lucky to be able to walk down to the beach using the Gibson steps. The cliffs from the beach were magnificent and you get another view of the twelve apostles in the distance. Good stop and good views.

Walking down the Gibsons Steps is a great experience that gives you a different view of the Twelve Apostles. You get to see the huge cliffs from the bottom and the waves crashing against the shore. The stairs were a little wet but easy enough...More

Steep steps down to a narrow beach. High waves and foam made it exciting. Great views along to 12 Apostles

There are about 86 steps down to the beach from the top so I would so no to you walking it if you have a disability.
