Give yourself 20 minutes for this stop, but even though you need to climb stairs down to it, do it as there is a beautiful arch and pool at the bottom. A very beautiful rock formation to view on the Great Ocean Road.

What a beautiful formation, so glad we took the stairs down to the bottom too as the view from within the grotto out into the ocean was spectacular.

The Grotto is one of the highlights of the Great Ocean Road, and it shows to the ultimate the power of the sea in driving a way into the limestone coast line. It is truly majestic and beautiful, not least because of the panoply of colours - nature at some of its most impressive

Visited on Thursday 1st March. If you have the time include this in your visit along the Great Ocean Road. It is easily reached down a flight of stairs and a great spot to get close to the rock formations.

Of all the rock formations to view along the Great Ocean Road, this was our unanimous favorite. The view from one side was the ocean swirling in violent motions and from the other a peaceful reflective pool. A picture of opposites through a hole in the cliff. Stunning.
