Many miss this, and it is really an incredibly beautiful beach. Get down to ground level with two of the Apostles - a wild and beautiful beach awaits you here. The steps take only a couple of minutes to navigate and the pay off of this stunning Apostle-viewing beach is well worth it.

The Great Ocean Road offers some of the most stunning coastal scenery in the world, much of it in Port Campbell National Park. However not a lot of the beach is actually accessible for more than viewing. Gibsons Steps counters this offering an opportunity for a walk or some sunbathing and play on the beach.

Gibson’s Steps is a set of quite large stairs that lead right down to a great beach where you can get some pictures looking toward the Twelve Apostles and maybe dip your toes in the water. But be warned the ocean is very rough here and swimming is not an option. At the Twelve Apostles visitors center there is a trail that leads to Gibson’s Steps. Do not start there. Go directly from the Gibsons Steps entrance off the road. It will take directly to the steps instead of a 2 km trail. Also be aware that the steps are wet and muddy and may be a little slippery but can be done by any fitness level.

Just down the road from the 12 apostles, this spot is perfect for a walk on the beach. Despite the tourists it seems very few actually bother to venture down the stairs to walk on the beach. As a result you can get great photo's and a bit of peace from the maddening crowds.

Gibson steps is a must when doing the great ocean road, it is a busy stop and you need to visit to enjoy the viewpoints and get a full effect of the area! The beaches are so beautiful and it is so peaceful down the steps by the beach.
