Port Campbell: A Seaside Charm
Port Campbell is a charming seaside town situated along Victoria’s Great Ocean Road and nearby the spectacular Port Campbell National Park.
Visitors will be swept away by the stunning location atop cliffs that jut out to the Southern Ocean. You can swim, fish, and enjoy wonderful waterfront dining and the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere that makes it an ideal destination any time of year.
This colourful town boasts a variety of shops, cafes, bakeries and galleries. Fossick through the small streets and be sure to savour the seaside location with a casual meal or drink by the water. The picturesque harbour makes an ideal backdrop for some fishing or join a boat tour.
Diving is popular, with several gorges located along the ocean floor, and this region is also home to more than a few shipwrecks. While they weren’t always friendly towards ships, the sometimes rough waters are a boon for surfers, with Two Mile Bay boasting some of the best breaks in the state.
Port Campbell is an ideal destination if you are looking to base yourself close to the Twelve Apostles. This striking limestone rock formation is the highlight, but certainly not the sole attraction along this rugged coastline.
Explore pristine crescent bays, towering cliffs and natural attractions including Loch Ard Gorge, Gibson Steps and the Bay of Islands. From Port Campbell it’s possible to charter a helicopter to see this famed coastline in style, and with a super bird's-eye view.
Port Campbell has long been a holiday destination, so if you want to stay overnight or longer, you can be assured that the region is well-equipped for facilities and accommodation. Choose from cottages, cabins, bed and breakfast, caravans and motels.
